Marina City (detail)

I've written before about living near Chicago, but not being interested in photographing the city, and about how that all changed about three years ago when my "Chicago Project" was born. That's when I realized there was a lot of beauty in Chicago architecture and I began a new series of landscapes for me– the city landscape. I've been refining this series and recently made several images I'm tentatively calling Chicago Glass.

While most visitors to the city admire the skyline and the scale of the buildings, I've been photographing the reflections in the windows. Chicago's skyscrapers are divided into thousands of window segments, and each pane of glass is like a funhouse mirror reflecting the funhouse mirrors of the buildings around it. The result is a distorted, almost humorous, portrait of a city known for its uncompromising vertical lines.
