Chicago, like many urban centers throughout the world, has recently undergone a surge in new construction, grafting a new layer of architectural experimentation onto those of past eras. In early 2007, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College Chicago, in collaboration with the U.S. Equities Realty artist-in-residence program, invited Michael Wolf to photograph the Chicago cityscape. Bringing his unique perspective on changing urban environments to a city renowned for its architectural legacy, Wolf chose to photograph the central downtown area, focusing specifically on issues of voyeurism and the contemporary urban landscape in flux.

The cars in the ”Transmission” series by Maria Friberg, were photographed from underneath, like ships sailing on the surface of the ocean or airplanes against a clear-blue sky. They look like abstract shapes against the monochrome background, while the unusual perspective creates a sense of vulnerability and oppression in the beholder. With their shimmering metallic colors, they also look like bugs lying on their back. The cars move from the top of the image towards the ground, like a slow, perpetual waterfall.

Geneviève Caron has been taking pictures since she was in her teens, but only decided to become a photographer in her late twenties, after having worked as a graphic designer for a few years, as well as project manager in an advertising agency. She studied photography, graphic design and fashion merchandising. In her work, she chooses to represent an idealized, beautified reality which she controls both on set and in post-production. The subtle interaction between visual elements, independent of the subject matter, support strong notions of minimalism throughout her work.
