Oak Park Regional Housing Center is an ethnographic portrait of a unique organization that has, for over thirty years, aided in the village's quest to achieve and maintain a geographically integrated place. It is the cornerstone of Oak Park's plan for diversity.
Oak Park Stories is authored by Jay Ruby, a recently retired visual anthropologist, who has spent the last forty years exploring the relation between culture and the visual/pictorial world. He has published numerous studies about photography, film, popular culture and produced several ethnographic films and also founded graduate and undergraduate program in the anthropology of visual communication at Temple University. Oak Park Stories is the culmination of his interest reflexivity as the village is also his hometown.
