THE WHITE CITY: The 1893 World's Columbian Exposition
A photographic record of the Chicago World's Fair
by Joshua Field
A collection of photographs from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair or World's Columbian Exposition, this book makes an excellent visual companion to Erik Larson's "The Devil in the White City". Included are more than 140 photographs of the Exposition including the entire "official" photographic record.
Field is an emerging artist known for poetically driven narrative paintings that are iconic, psychological and subversive. Arrays of archetypical imagery culled from both the collective consciousness and the realm of the intensely personal portray both sociological issues and mythic individual dramas.
