An Older Train Photograph

Just a reminder that I do take photos. The photograph here is a few years old but has been a popular one over time. I limit the editions of my photos to 25 and I believe this particular image is at number 19. This series came out of my first foray into digital photography and in a sense I created faux, idealized, panoramas of Chicago. This is a prime example. All of these structures do exist but not in the manner depicted. And now with the passage of time a number of other buildings have sprung up around the one depicted. There is a large five piece installation of this piece in the Gage Restaurant on Michigan Avenue in Chicago and it's impressive.
