Catalog Number: 
Book, Vergara, Camilo José
Date: 
2001
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"The eminent photographer and sociologist Camilo José Vergara has observed and recorded the evolution of America’s inner cities for over twenty years, documenting the effects of time, commercialism, culture, and neglect on the built environment, with an aesthetic vision that has been hailed by the New York Times as “persuasive and moving.” Here, in a unique collaboration with Timothy Samuelson, Chicago’s leading architectural historian, Vergara probes the power and resonance of one of America’s greatest cities. Unexpected Chicagoland includes over two hundred stunning color photographs, accompanied by a fascinating original narrative of the hidden history of Chicago’s renowned architectural past. Vergara’s photographs are a treasure trove of historically and visually interesting buildings and environments, most of them on the abandoned urban fringes. Included are examples of rarely seen work by some of the greatest architects of the twentieth century, such as Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and William Burley Griffin, as well as dazzling examples of Art Deco design." *
