Stunning Black and White Photos of Chicago in 1988

“A look at a man plunged into a rugged city in the diversity of his urbanism” is how the sociologist and historian Henri Peretz describes Chicago.

“Chicago’s urban landscape is very particular, changing at every turn, sometimes monumental and majestic, sometimes dark and lugubrious,” says Peretz. “The city is flat, the skyscrapers are visible from everywhere. In the loop, the metro is omnipresent because it is airy. The variety of habitat is also impressive. The contrast between the modern city center, the chic suburbs, and the poor neighborhoods was and remains striking.”

Taken by Gil Rigoulet, Chicago 1988 was commissioned by French daily newspaper Le Monde.
