Chicago Calling is a collection of photographs taken from June 1-9, 2014. Earlier in the year, while visiting Chicago on a two-day agency assignment, I was frustrated that I had no time to shoot for myself. The city’s faces and places demanded further exploration. Flying home to New York, I knew I would return soon. I had a bad case of Chicago calling.
The only cure would be to come back with my cameras fully provisioned with heaps of black and white film. Over nine days of shooting I walked the streets of Chicago until my legs crumbled beneath me. I partook of touristy adventures such as visiting the Hancock and Sears (aka Willis) Towers, and an architectural riverboat tour. Were nine days enough to slake my thirst for Chicago? Not really – but they were all I had.
I hope Chicago Calling will give you a case of Chicago calling, too.
