This is not just a book, but a celebration of life in the city. The photographs were taken while on my many travels between September 2008 and July 2010.
Moving to and living in the city made me grow in exponential ways. The city became everything to me. I escaped all of my problems by exploring and taking photographs, which led me to see more than just buildings. I saw different ways of life from the past, present and future. The book reveals this. Everything old is new again. It becomes timeless and classic.
Many people wonder what my life was like in Chicago. This book shows everything I was able to accomplish between 2008 and 2010. I was extremely fortunate to be able to travel around the city as much as I did.
My goal was to create new ways of showing photographs rather than one after the other. I hope you enjoy looking at this book. Let your mind wander and be free.
