I've lived in Chicago for years, and this book is a really interesting way to see the city. There are a few funny things hidden in the book, the author probably didn't even notice them.

Looks great out on the coffee table as well, good conversation piece.
Outstanding. Terry Evans takes thoughtful and beautiful photographs.
This book makes one feel that they have just visited Chicago. I was there in July and took a second vicarious trip via the book. There are very unusual views of familiar places. It is a real treat!
What a delightful book.. I love chicago and really have enjoyed this book.. Went to Millenium park and saw the large photos and then knew I needed to see the entire book. The photos are great but the text is also very interesting.. Enjoy
Got this for my mother's 78th birthday, so I skimmed it and packed it off. I was impressed by the photos and the text. The only fault is that I looked for all the neighborhoods that I'd lived in and didn't see a one or any place close. Industrial and suburban photos were nice but I was hoping for 100% Chicago. I'd recommend this and I'm looking forward to the next book.
Not nearly enough photos of the Loop or so many of Chicago's architectural highlights. Way too much of this book involves rural images far from the downtown. Even the downtown photos were not that great. Above Chicago is a much better book -- I should have bought that one first.
This is a spectactular set of photographs, mostly taken from the air, of the city of Chicago. Having visited there many times, I think that from the ground I saw too little. I especially saw too little of the beauty and too much of the trash, dirt, and wear. And I don't know when the pictures were taken, but I never saw the freeways look so empty.

Ms. Evans is a well known landscape photographer. I'd think of these pictures more as a cityscape, but she has an amazing eye to to point the camera exactly in the right place for maximum impact.

In addition to the downtown metro area, she has also been able to find scenes of wilderness, of parks, of residential area, even of the U-505 submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry and in all seasons of the year. This book is obviously the work of a lot of time, and the pictures are dated in 2003 and 2004. A marvelous book that shows Chicago in it's most favorable light.
Terry Evans is one of my favorite photographers. From the Flint Hill prairies of Kansas to the city of Chicago, Evans work is consistent in its exceptional insight. This book is one of the very best of this city. Check it out!
