Photo Essay

Sweet Home Chicago


Since March 2008, I have been in Chicago, Illinois. For a farm girl from South Africa, it has been an incredible experience to live in such a great city for six months! This has been a fascinating time for me and, it is with regret that I leave. These photographs are a selection of my favourites, thank you to the people of Chicago, you will stay in my heart.

This photo essay is dedicated to Emma.

    I am so glad you enjoyed your time in my home town, I am off at college and miss it so much. I love what you captured in Chicago. Your photos make me feel at home but you also gave an awesome edge that not everyone would see when visiting there. Nice Job!
