This handy format showcases Chicago’s greatest sites and views, including four gatefolds of breathtaking panoramic beauty that capture the visual paradoxes and triumphs of this famous city by the lake.
Visalli photographs the architectural masterpieces famous throughout the world―from Louis Sullivan’s ornamental facades to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s sleek office towers―as well as the works of the new generation of the Chicago School of Architecture. But Chicago is about more than buildings: Visalli shoots the dark girders of the El, the taverns open all night, and the pomp of Michigan Avenue. With more than 200 images, Chicago captures the visual paradoxes and triumphs of this great American city.
