Chicago Sun-Times story on the Chicago Limelight Club!

The Chicago Sun-Times has posted Mike Thomas' story on the 25th Anniversary of the Limelight Club.

Five of my images were licensed for the story online and 4 in the Sunday edition of the newspaper!

I was glad to be a part of the Limelight Club 'Back in the day' as well as yesterdays big write up. Can't wait for the reunion party!

The night before, Bob Sirott of WFLD-TV(Fox) interviewed Mike Thomas and talked about the club in a 5 minute segment. Eight of my images were used for this feature!

FYI: Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit opens 7/25/10 at The Art Institute of Chicago


Today I had the time and the opportunity to spend time at The Art Institute of Chicago for a members preview of the Henri Cartier-Bresson photography exhibit which opens tomorrow. The collection is vast and not something you want to quickly walk thru!
I was so enchanted by his work I plan on going back next week on my first day off.
A little info on the master from Wiki:
Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern photojournalism, an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the "street photography" or "real life reportage" style that has influenced generations of photographers that followed.
