Absolutely amazing. Nickel's photographs of people are just as compelling as his better-known photos of architecture. I'll be re-reading this often, even though some of the demolition photos made me feel ill.

Great book, giving a look into Nickel's life. Loved the snippets. I just wish they would have touched more on his biography throughout. As a photo book though, it is amazing stuff and worthy of a book!
Gorgeous black & white photography of a Chicago that doesn't really exist anymore.
