Chicago has never had a photo book of its own. Until now. The city has produced some of the most important photographers of our time -- Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Vivian Maier, Art Shay -- but has never before possessed a book packed with their most timeless work. This is the finest collection of its kind -- 100 stunning images by the city's most revered photographers that show the enduring and endearing aspects of Chicago and its landscape from the Loop to the city's vast array of neighborhoods. Richard Cahan and Michael Williams, the foremost picture editors of the city, curate the book. Here they have chosen photos going back more than a century to show a city that is both well-known and surprising. This is a book for people who love Chicago and for visitors who want something special to remember her by. It is filled with classic photographs that defy time -- timeless pictures of a changing city.
About the Author
Richard Cahan and Michael Williams have teamed up to produce twelve books. Most are based on long-lost archives or photographic collections. Called "the eloquent archival sleuthing duo" by Booklist magazine's Donna Seaman, they have written award-winning books about photography, art, and history, including two on Vivian Maier, the reclusive nanny whose discovered photographic work has become a worldwide sensation. They specialize in Chicago photographs and both live in Chicago.
