Reborn from its ashes after a great fire, Chicago became at the beginning of the 20th century a hotbed for the automobile industry as well as for modern architecture. As if it were a nostalgic remembrance of those brass era times where both of them shaped its character, the city offers cars a privileged treatment while their drivers run their errands downtown. Amongst the most impressive examples of art deco, neo-gothic or modern skyscrapers, dozens of ten and more-story parking garages discretely fill the gaps between their taller siblings. Absent from the towering skyline and unnoticed in the urban landscape, yet in the midst of this jungle of infinite grids and perfect angles, they quietly fulfill their mission: hosting automobiles and offering, to those willing to see, some of the most stunning and intimate views of town.
This series shows some of these views taken around the Chicago Loop and Michigan Ave.
