Chicago Photographs

Overview

Our journey through Chicago begins on an El train platform looking South on State Street in the Loop. From there we are guided through the streets of the Windy City. Through the eyes of 30 photographers, we see Chicago's inhabitants, ways of life, its past (as far back as 1930) and its present. Eventually we end our trip outside of the city's center, but not before we feel a genuine sense of intimacy and warmth within a place notorious for its chill.

Overview

Our journey through Chicago begins on an El train platform looking South on State Street in the Loop. From there we are guided through the streets of the Windy City. Through the eyes of 30 photographers, we see Chicago's inhabitants, ways of life, its past (as far back as 1930) and its present. Eventually we end our trip outside of the city's center, but not before we feel a genuine sense of intimacy and warmth within a place notorious for its chill. The images herein have been culled from LaSalle bank's more than 4,000 collected photos. It is divided into two sections: part one presents a sequence of powerful photographs taken in downtown Chicago, part two unfolds as an artistic testimony to the people who live in the city's historically diverse neighborhoods. Features 47 works by artists such as Walker Evans, Harry Callahan, Danny Lyon, Thomas Struth, Lee Friedlander, Robert Frank, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Terry Evans, Hedrich Blessing Studio, Vera Lutter, and others.

Meet the Author

Vera Lutter was born in 1960 in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Solo exhibitions of her work have been mounted at the Kunstverein M nchen and the Kunsthalle Basel, and her photographs were recently included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial. She lives in New York.

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) was born in Detroit, and began his career by joining the camera club at Chrysler Motors in 1938. He became one of the great innovators of twentieth-century American photography, and later taught at the Institute of Design in Chicago and then the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where he founded and directed the Graduate Program in Photography. He is known, not only for landscapes but also for his dynamic urban views, portraits of his wife, Eleanor, and extensive color work. All of this was widely published and exhibited during his lifetime, and was the subject of a major retrospective at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in the late 1990s. Previous monographs include The Photographer at Work, Elemental Landscapes, Callahan in New England, Early Street Photography 1943-1945, Color 1941-1980, and New Color Photographs 1978-1987.

More than any other artist, Walker Evans (1903-1975) invented the image of essential America that we have long since accepted as fact. Evans did most of his best work in the 1930s, and his pictures have been celebrated as documents of the Great Depression. But his concerns ranged far beyond the troubles of the 1930s, and his work has made its impact not only on photography but also on modern literature, film and the traditional visual arts.

Robert Frank was born in Zurich in 1924 to parents of Jewish descent. He emigrated to theUnited States two years after World War II ended, and since then he has produced work that changed the history of art and photography. Groundbreaking projects include The Americans, Lines of My Hand, Thank You, Black White and Things, Pull My Daisy and Cocksucker Blues. Frank was the subject of a major retrospective organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. in 1994. He was awarded the Hasselblad Award for photography in 1996. A major traveling exhibition organized by The National Gallery of Art will tour nationally in 2008 and 2009, with stops in Washington, D.C., San Francisco and New York.

Born in 1934, Lee Friedlander is one of the world's most important living photographers. Among his previous books are the seminal Self Portrait and The American Monument, and more recently, American Musicians, Letters from the People, Little Screens, The Desert Seen and Sticks & Stones. His work was the subject of a major 2005 retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, which travels to SFMOMA in 2008.

Thomas Struth was born in 1954 in Gelden, Germany, He studied painting with Gerhard Richter and photography with Bernd Becher at the Dusseldorf Art Academy. His work has been exhibited internationally at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; The Saint Louis Art Museum; The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. In 1997 he was awarded the Spectrum International Photography Prize.

John Szarkowski is director emeritus of the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. As director of the department from 1962 through 1991, he oversaw the presentation of more than 100 exhibitions. He also oversaw the publication of more than 30 books and catalogues, the inauguration of the Museum's first photography collection galleries in 1964 and their expansion in 1984 and the establishment of endowments to support the department's programs. Throughout his tenure, he supervised the development of the collection, which now includes more than 25,000 works spanning the history of photography. Szarkowski was born in Ashland, Wisconsin in 1925.
