Life in the Big City
I’m an architectural photographer. But occasion I like to roam the streets and photograph the people of this great city. You never know what you’ll find: an acrobatic shirtless tattooed skateboarder in Grant Park or a sidewalk produce vendor on Pilsen’s 18th Street. You might find three strangers striking up a warm conversation on a frigid day downtown, or maybe—just maybe—a young Esperanza Spalding, a few years before Grammys and fame, singing her heart before a modest audience at the Chicago Jazz Fest.
