One River, Two Banks

  • One River, Two Banks
  • The top image i captured with a drone above the Chase Bank dimond building downtown and the bottom i took of an abandoned building on Chicago's dilapidated west side. Together they represent the contrasting prospective this city's occuipants see life from.
  • Living in an urban metropolis, there are countless socioeconomic lines, some are physical, others financial, each widening the prospective shift between those up top and the rest below the line.
  • Chicago has many Bridges, some of which are shown in stock photographs and on the cover's of travel Mags. But most are El train underpasses in teh areas of the city that are less glamorized. I captured a street level shot under the train on the city's south side near my house and a shot looking down one of the city's river bridges near my job.
