Pursuing his doctorate in sociology, David Schalliol has spent much time observing the built environment in his adopted city, Chicago. His photographs highlight relationships between architecture, policy, and history. While focusing his subject matter on dereliction and abandonment in Chicago's underprivileged South Side neighbourhood, his photographs seem to capture a glimpse of joy and even hope. I particularly like the night time shots where lighting plays a dramatic role. (via Arch Daily)
