Chronicle: Ferguson is creating a piece of history by compiling photos from eyewitness sources. We will use these photos to generate a book that will then be donated to St. Louis area schools. We hope this will spark discussions amongst the students and teachers of our schools. If you want your photos including please submit them to our website for consideration.
We are also organizing photography workshops to teacher and inspire future generations to document their lives and the events effecting them.
Those of us in the community know that Ferguson’s story is bigger than recent events. Broader. More hopeful. And the reaction in cities throughout the country and around the world show that there are many people out there whose hearts are with us.
Until now, the story has been directed by the media. Our aim with Chronicle: Ferguson is to change that. We are seeking photographs from the community: citizens of Ferguson and St. Louis, participants in protests, anyone who has been affected by the events in our community. Whatever your story is, we want to show it.
The Chronicle: Ferguson book will be created from the best photos submitted to our website, chosen by a three-person judging panel along with input from the community. We want to hear from you about the photos that move you or tell a part of the story that you hadn’t seen before. We are excited to receive the official support of the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum, who has agreed to promote Chronicle: Ferguson on their website and in their Museum shop. This support comes as the Museum mounts its own landmark exhibition, Ferguson and Beyond, illustrating the significance of this one-of-a-kind publication.

One City Center is an office tower complex and former shopping mall in St. Louis, Missouri.The 25-story office tower is the ninth-tallest habitable building in St. Louis at a height of 375ft. The mall was four stories with a green, white, and glass façade. When the mall opened in 1985, St. Louis Centre was the largest urban shopping mall in the United States, with over 150 stores with 20 restaurants in 1500000ft2. The $95 million complex was originally to be developed by the May Company and called May Mall, but development for the mall was given to the Simon Property Group.St. Louis Centre opened in 1985, with anchor stores Famous-Barr at one end and Dillard's at the other. The anchor location of Famous-Barr was the company's flagship outlet and also contained that company's corporate offices, and the corporate headquarters of the May Company. The Dillard's location was once the flagship, and headquarters of Stix, Baer and Fuller, with that chain being sold to Dillard's just as mall construction commenced. The mall was initially popular and featured national chain stores. As the 1990s progressed, the mall faced challenges with the redevelopment of the former Westroads Shopping Center into the St. Louis Galleria. By the mid-1990s, Dillard's converted its location into one of its clearance stores, and no longer carried regular day-to-day merchandise, this location closed for good in 2001. In 2006, the almost-vacant "dead mall" closed, and was bought by The Pyramid Companies and was planned to be turned into condominiums and retail space, though the plan was never realized, as Pyramid closed in 2008 due to financial troubles. The mall was foreclosed in 2009 by lender Bank of America and later bought for $12.7 million by Environmental Operations. In 2009, the building was about 85% vacant, and other developers were trying to raise funding for a renovation of the mall. Plans included a $35 million renovation, turning much of the complex into parking space, as well as a $29 million project to attract tenants to the center's office tower. The project, led by investor Stacy Hastie, includes plans for local law firm Lewis, Rice & Fingersh and accounting firm LarsonAllen LLP to move into the building. Earlier, the Missouri Development Finance Board had approved a $5 million loan for the project. In May 2010, work began to convert part of the building into a 750-car parking garage and retail/entertainment complex called Mercantile Exchange. The skybridges to the Famous-Barr Railway Exchange Building and the former Stix, Baer and Fuller / Dillard's store have now been demolished to open up Washington and Locust streets.
