For Luan Barros and Kelly Parsell, Humboldt Park is the perfect Chicago setting to call home. “It’s a comfortable neighborhood to live in, especially being from a different country,” says Barros, a Brazilian photographer who first came to the U.S. in 2008. Soon after his arrival, he met LaGrange native Kelly Parsell, owner of greeting card company Nerd Press and an interdisciplinary artist who has assisted fiber artist and SAIC professor Nick Cave. The couple spent some time traveling internationally, and after a six-month sojourn in Barros’s homeland, they took up permanent residence in Chicago in 2010.
