Analú López is an artist, archivist/librarian, and photographer living in Chicago.
I love photography, archives, books and working with artists. I have worked for many non-profits in Chicago–such as the National Museum of Mexican Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Currently, I work at the Newberry Library of Chicago as the Ayer Indigenous Studies Librarian-in-Residence.
I have a Master of Library and Information Sciences with a certificate in Archives and Cultural Heritage Resources and Services from Dominican University and a Bachelor of Arts in Photography with a minor in Latino/a Studies and Art History from Columbia College Chicago.
My photographic work ranges from social documentary to digital manipulations and photographic essays with intimate portraits. I have participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Chicago, Texas, and Mexico. In 2009, I developed a publication that aimed to recover an underrepresented history of Chicago Art culture. I have been published in a variety of books and magazines.
