I have always loved architecture, and am lucky to live in Chicago.
Chicago’s older buildings with their elaborately detailed terra cotta and ornamentation contrast with the shiny glass and steel of the newly- built skyscrapers....
They reflect the rest of the city in their mirror-like windows, creating an off-kilter world.
The camera captures views that are not seen immediately by the eye.
I find a building’s previously overlooked detail, or a mirror image that was not apparent before.
I am awed by the sheer stature of the buildings, their repetition of shape, and the light patterns on the brick, concrete and glass.
Most of these images were shot in downtown Chicago and many were taken from the heights of parking structures, and elevated train (“el”) platforms.
