Grace Coudal (BFA 21) recently released Bench, her second self-published photography book. 

A charming new photo book recounts the past couple of years in Chicago’s Lincoln Park as seen through the perspective of a grandmother and a single park bench.

Bench is a self-published photography book created by Mary Lou Wade and Grace Coudal. It showcases photographs from Mary Lou’s favorite bench in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, with original captions by Mary Lou full of humor, reflection, and wit. It features her photography observations of changing seasons, the world in lockdown, and life in general. The book includes a companion short film available on YouTube.
