I came across your book after uploading mine. You have some really great, powerful images. I am currently a student and live in a very small town and have been following the local volunteer firefighters around, documenting all that they do for their community. I would love to know what it is like being in such a large city with such an impressive fire department and being given the opportunity to photograph them. My father was a volunteer and so is my boyfriend now, so I have always taken a particular interest in firefighting and those who perform this remarkable duty. Your book is amazing and I hope you continue to photograph the Chicago Fire Department!
