An Unlikely Chicago Scene: Ghana in Fog

Each day, photographer Paul Octavious visits a mound of earth in Chicago that he calls the hill: “Each time I have come to the hill a new story is told to me as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play.”

One day, about two years ago, an unlikely story unfolded in front of his eyes, featuring men who were very much not locals: “A soccer game started on one of the fields I was walking by. I photographed and took video of this experience. Later on after taking the video, I learned that the team was the Ghana national team! Amazing and random all at the same time.”
