This series of images documents structures just prior to and during demolition. These photographs capture a transient time where the past life and inherent death of the structure is simultaneously apparent.

Whether it’s the iconic chocolate factory Fannie May or a location that held Olympic Trials in the 1920’s, these spaces resonate with Chicago history.  When in these environments ones mind can’t help but drift off and begin to imagine what theses places were like when fully alive.   At the same time the state of these structures as they are being demolished is intriguing in there own right.  The photographs show a unique and sometimes gloomy perspective of what will be lost forever.  They illustrate the life and inevitable death that most structures face in the modern urban envronment.

All images are available as 13 x 19" and 20 x 30" pigment prints made in editions of 25 and 10, respectively, for $650 (small) and $1200 (large). Some images may be available larger.
