9780847826599: Chicago

This handy format showcases Chicago’s greatest sites and views, including four gatefolds of breathtaking panoramic beauty that capture the visual paradoxes and triumphs of this famous city by the lake.
Visalli photographs the architectural masterpieces famous throughout the world―from Louis Sullivan’s ornamental facades to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s sleek office towers―as well as the works of the new generation of the Chicago School of Architecture. But Chicago is about more than buildings: Visalli shoots the dark girders of the El, the taverns open all night, and the pomp of Michigan Avenue. With more than 200 images, Chicago captures the visual paradoxes and triumphs of this great American city.

About the Author:

Award-winning photojournalist Santi Visalli’s photographs have appeared in Time, Newsweek, and the New York Times, as well as in other leading magazines and newspapers throughout the world. He is the author of Universe’s San Francisco, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Boston.
Stanley Tigerman has designed buildings through-out the world. In 1988 he designed the installation for the Art Institute of Chicago’s exhibition “Chicago Architecture: 1872—1922.” The following year he organized the “99 Chicago Architects” at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.

From Publishers Weekly:

Freelance photojournalist Visalli's superb color pictures celebrate the architecture, vistas, roadways and artwork of the Windy City. As Kurtis, a Chicago television anchor, notes in the foreword, Chicago rose like a phoenix from the ashes of the Great Fire of 1871, and new edifices were fashioned from incombustible materials like brick, stone, iron and slate. Visalli depicts such older architectural greats as the Adler and Sullivan Auditorium Theater, as well as giant newcomers like the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center. Kurtis refers to contemporary slums with their "wanton" hunger and violence, but Visalli reveals the fashionable Gold Coast on Lake Shore Drive, sculptures by Calder, Picasso and Henry Moore, the University of Chicago campus, the trading floor at the Chicago Board of Trade and the facade of the Art Institute. Curiously, the Baha'i Temple in suburban Wilmette is included among the examples of "urban" grandeur. Captions are placed at the end of the book, which is cumbersome.
