Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at The Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 2006. Presents Lee Balterman's "Chicago". Some of the finest and most representative images of the city by one of its most devoted photographic chroniclers. Most photographers come and go; peripatetic restlessness characterizes their work, and it is inherent to their sensibility and oeuvre. But there are a few photographers who stay in one particular place, often a great city, and are identified with it because they choose to do the opposite: Chronicle their beloved city in loving detail. Balterman proudly considered himself a Chicago photographer (just as Helen Levitt was New York City's visual poet), and his subject is memorably summed up by a great writer: "There is an open and raw beauty about that city that seems either to kill or endow one with the spirit of life" (Richard Wright). Lee Balterman died on March 16, 2012 at the age of 92. An absolute "must-have" title for Lee Balterman collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 46 plates. One of the finest American photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO ART SHAY TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 19710
