There are approximately 2.7 million residents living in the city of Chicago. Occupants inhabit 237 square miles of land and make use of 26 miles of lakefront. While Chicago is a densely-populated area, work and obligations can make for an impersonal existence. “Two Million To One” is a series that captures the more intimate moments of people’s lives. It intends to give voice and meaning to otherwise nameless faces and remind one another of our shared humanity. At the age of 11, Angelo Valentine learned that cooking for other people had its rewards. To help support his parents and nine brothers, he set up a grill in Humboldt Park and sold chicken sandwiches. From those humble beginnings, he started his career as a cook. Valentine has since expanded his culinary education and plans to one day run his own business.
