Streets of Chicago

I just came home from a trip to Chicago, where I spent a bit of my time wandering through different neighborhoods, observing people. I stopped some of the ones I passed, asking if I could make a quick portrait. These pictures are snapshots, made in minutes or seconds at the spot where we met. I only asked people not to smile, other than that they posed as they wished. The pictures are not perfect in any way, but together I feel they suggest a portrait of Chicago’s diversity.
