Chicago, up-close

No establishing shot, this:

 

Chicago. 24 Nov. 2016

Chicago. 24 Nov. 2016

With no signage or iconic buildings visible, this could be a photo taken in a hell of a lot of places, which shows the limitations of seeing places only through names, or having a simplistic view of a city. But as I took this photo, I almost had a sense of the curb concrete, the grass, the leaves, not knowing what I know, but just being there, and that what I knew didn’t mean much outside my mind.

  1. Context is everything
    or arguably in graphic
    representation…
    …nothing at all….

  2. What we know
    means nothing
    outside of our
    knowing.

    Inside our knowing,
    it’s too dark to see.
