Mark Your Calendars... May 15th

On May 15th, I'll be talking about my new book, Under October Skies, at Prairie Path Books in Wheaton, IllinoisI'll be signing books and speaking about what inspired me to begin photographing Acadia and what keeps me going back year after year. I'll talk about self-publishing and what it was like to get 1,000 books– that's over 2 tons or 4,000 pounds– delivered to my garage one day back in November. You may even get a few photography tips from me too.

Can't wait for the book talk? Or do you live too far to attend? You can still get a signed copy from me here.


The talk starts at 1pm. Email me if you'd like a reminder closer to the date.

The City Landscape

Marina City (detail)

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.
