Filmmaker and scholar Wills Glasspiegel has been documenting the work of the Chicago footwork community since 2010. He works in visual, audio and graphic media, publishing across online, radio, TV, newspaper, museum, gallery and other platforms to local, regional, national and international audiences. His range and reach are extensive – from the filming of Chicago’s famed Bud Billiken Parade (the largest African American parade in the U.S.), to National Public Radio (NPR) programming and music. Glasspiegel is currently writing about footwork as a PhD student in African American Studies and American Studies at Yale. In addition to his scholarship and documentary film practice, Wills’ photographs and collages can be found throughout the album art of footwork artists including RP Boo, Traxman, DJ Clent and other Chicago producers.
