Chicago Film Photography
I deeply love Chicago. I love Chicago for its towering skyline, beautiful beaches, massive parks, winding rivers, humble people, storied sports teams, museums, attractions and theaters. More so, I love Chicago for its nitty-gritty details. Its buzzing neon signs, its old diners and dive bars. Its dimly lit underbelly, late-night hotdog stands and roadside motels. Its endless alleyways, crumbling train stations and twisted steel bridges. All these little details point towards Chicago’s history and create a true portrait of a city. I have found my favorite way to preserve these sign posts to the past is to capture them on film. Film has such a timeless feel to it and its cinematic characteristics perfectly compliment Chicago’s iconic look. All the photos here were captured on various film stocks, using old film cameras. The panoramic photos were taken a camera called the Xpan, which is the only camera that shoots across multiple frames of 35mm at once, creating a totally unique perspective.
All the prints are signed and were made with the highest quality materials.
