In Krakow, says Denise Keim, every family living in the high-rise apartment blocks that encircle the city is given a little plot of land to garden--a policy that has reduced the amount of available farmland on the outskirts. Keim shot this photo of a farmer leading her cow back home from a Krakow park, where she'd taken it to graze "because it's the closest open land," at the beginning of a Fulbright-funded year spent capturing street scenes in eastern Europe. A display of photographs from that trip, as well as other work, goes up Sunday, September 30, at the Charleston Tavern, 2076 N. Hoyne. The free opening reception is from 6 to 9; call 773-395-2059 for more information.
