A visual diary of Chicago life.
Chicago is the city of real people. People who aren't on billboards. People as beautiful and striking as Chicago's architecture. Chicago is business and purpose, love and loneliness, beauty and disorder.
Forty years ago, I started taking photographs for a college project; a photo book titled "Faces of Chicago". I didn't know then that it was called street photography. Fast forward to March 2020 when Chicagoans sheltered in place during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic. I took a camera to the empty streets and starteddocumenting the city during this very strange time. "Chicago, A Daily Diary" began.
ChicagoDAILY is year 2022 from that ongoing project. In March 2020, I began posting ten photos every day, to document the extraordinary people and architecture of Chicago. ChicagoDAILY is one photo a day from this visual diary. One year of living images from one of the greatest cities in the world.
I stand in the shadow of Vivian Maier, Art Shay and others who have photographed the soul of Chicago.
ChicagoDAILY is a passion, a tribute and a continuation.
Sweet Home, Chicago.
My city. My muse. My happy place.
