Catherine Opie: Chicago (American Cities), 2006
Texts by Robert Fitzpatrick and Elizabeth Smith

This small publication of 18 darkly radiant images of Chicago continued Catherine Opie's photographic series, American Cities.


Seeking to uncover aspects of each city's psychic and physical identity and sense of community, Opie's series has taken on Minneapolis, St. Louis, Los Angeles, New York and now Chicago - the American "City of Architecture."This body of work consists of a group of 14 nocturnal black-and-white photographs of Chicago's architectural landscape alongside a set of four deep, four-color "portrait" views of Lake Michigan at different seasons of the year.
