Anonymous / Part 1.
Usually you’ll find me photographing daily life, kids and dogs. Families. Fun. Relationships. But I have another love: the streets of Chicago. When the stars align and I find time, I go downtown to wander and take pictures. No intention or plan, just whatever strikes me as interesting. It’s so relaxing and freeing. No restrictions, no pressure, no expectations, and every time I notice something new.
For several years now, my street images have been mostly just sitting on my hard drive gathering dust. I have printed a few, and some have done well in juried exhibits. I started to get requests for prints and canvases. I thought it was finally time to put some of my favorite images into a specific and purposeful collection. To tell a story, but which story? Scanning over my images, a common theme emerged.
I’m going to share this project across a few blog posts, starting with these five images.
“You can be alone too in the city streets, among the crowds. We are all alone.”
