The perfect city by Bob Thall( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Perfect City, photographer Bob Thall explores the changing downtown landscape of America's third-largest city - Chicago. In sixty-four duotone photographs, Thall provides a visual record of the changing architectural landscape of downtown Chicago between 1972 and 1991. Throughout, Thall's photographs stress the concept of change and the importance of architecture in shaping our notion of place. They examine the great public spaces, buildings, and streets that have always served at the heart and soul of city life, culture, and commerce. And they show how the city in which modern urban architecture began becomes a metaphor for urban change throughout America. In the essay accompanying the photographs Peter Bacon Hales examines the notion of the city as museum (especially for visitors from the suburbs and rural areas), highlights the successes and failures of urban renewal in downtown Chicago, and assesses the city's current character

On city streets : Chicago, 1964-2004 by Gary Stochl( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the great tradition of photographers working in Chicago, Gary Stochl presents a personal vision of everyday life on the streets of downtown Chicago since 1964. And, like all great art, Stochl's images leave the viewer with an altered sense of the world." "Yet, until 2003, Stochl never showed his photographs to anyone, and this significant body of work remained unknown to the public. Self-taught and working in isolation, without the usual support a photographer is afforded by being a part of a larger artistic community, Stochl studied carefully the work of other classic street photographers, in particular Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, and through them learned how to see. He also took to the streets, and his photographs reveal an amazingly frank perspective of people who seem to struggle with the difficulty and loneliness of contemporary urban life."--BOOK JACKET
