Chicago Groove

Most commercial artists know that you can never wish enough to make the phone ring. We also know that the best gigs come along when you’re least expecting them.

For a photographer of people, things have been more than a little weird lately.

Yesterday, when I was least expecting it, a request came in for a project in a city that’s always been good to me.

That’s right; a gig in Chicago.

After a long hiatus, I’ll soon get to do things that I would normally do four or five times a year. A short flight to Midway, Orange Line train to The Loop, and high hotel views of the city.

I think it’s fitting that Chicago is the place where I’ll be getting back in my groove.

It made me think of a session from a few summers ago that took place near the Wrigley Building. My subject’s expression mirrors how I’m feeling now.
