LDOC was a free photography and creative writing publication that featured an emerging Chicago artist and writer each month, creating an installment-based experience for the Chicago commuter. It was distributed through newspaper boxes at the following Red Line stops: Howard St., Belmont, Sox-35th, and 69th. LDOC was also passed out by volunteers at the downtown Red Line Lake stops every first and third Monday evening of the month.

The publication was co-created with Danielle Wilcox and was published from October 2015 to October 2016. A collected edition of all issues can be purchased at l-doc.org
