Photo Information:

Location: Chicago, Illinois; Edgewater Neighborhood
Camera: Hasselblad 500CM
Lens: Carl Zeiss 80mm f/2.8 Planar
Film: Kodak Portra 160 (120)

The subject of these photos is the Belle Shore Hotel (completed in 1929 and designed by Koenigsberg & Weisfeld) in the Edgewater Neighborhood; it’s located in the Bryn Mawr historical district. I’ve photographed this building before, but that was in black & white, which of course, doesn’t do justice to the phenomenal green stone and yellow brick façade, or the polychromatic details. Oh, and check out that magnificent sunburst over the main entry door.
