Chicago Photographs
by Aaron Siskind
Publisher's Description
Our journey through Chicago begins on an El train platform looking South on State Street in the Loop. From there we are guided through the streets of the Windy City. Through the eyes of 30 photographers, we see Chicago's inhabitants, ways of life, its past (as far back as 1930) and its present. Eventually we end our trip outside of the city's center, but not before we feel a genuine sense of intimacy and warmth within a place notorious for its chill. The images herein have been culled from LaSalle bank’s more than 4,000 collected photos. It is divided into two sections: part one presents a sequence of powerful photographs taken in downtown Chicago, part two unfolds as an artistic testimony to the people who live in the city's historically diverse neighborhoods. Features 47 works by artists such as Walker Evans, Harry Callahan, Danny Lyon, Thomas Struth, Lee Friedlander, Robert Frank, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Terry Evans, Hedrich Blessing Studio, Vera Lutter, and others.
