Seth Putnam nuru Kimondo Writer Credentials: Seth Putnam is the editor of The Collective Quarterly, a one-location-per-issue print magazine. He has written for Chicago magazine, the Chicago Sun-Times, The Kansas City Star,, and more. Behind the story: "What never ceases to amaze me when reporting on Chicago start-ups ["Stellar Start-Ups," page 68] is how open the community is—and passionate about competing with Silicon Valley on a major scale. Thanks to start-up- focused organizations like Built In Chicago, the city is well on its way." His inspiration: "The old Life magazine credo: 'To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel: That is the purpose of life.'" On the digital world: "It's all about virtual reality: Much was made of this frontier a couple of decades ago, but now it finally seems to be on the horizon." Photographer Credentials: Originally from Tanzania, Chicago- based photographer Nuru Kimondo moved to the US at age 13. She developed a love of photography as a high schooler in Hyde Park. Behind the story: "While working with Mindy ["The CEO Whisperer," page 62], I really enjoyed her pleasant and relaxed demeanor. She brought her mom to the shoot, who turned out to be our 'stylist.' It was really sweet!" On working in Chicago: "I enjoy shooting in downtown Chicago in areas that are different in structure or design. I look for a certain intensity of sunlight that will shape my subjects, therefore lending a certain mood to the image I'm capturing." Photography 101: "Stay true to yourself. Shoot what you love and what makes you happy." photography by Steve Sanacore/the collective Quarterly, llc (putnam) T R U S T E D C H I C A G O D O C T O R S . N O W A P A R T O F
