Description My grandfather was bridgetender here for many years, watching the cargo pass, watching the city change around him, seeing that among other things, the river would always be there, and people would need to cross it.
F. J. Sochacki Jr, Chicago Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement My name is Frank. I believe that wherever you may find yourself, there is something worth photographing; the hard part is being able to see it.
I began taking pictures a Pocket Instamatic, moving through various formats to 35mm as I grew older. My transition to digital began with a 1-setting 0.3 megapixel on closeout for $25. I continued to work with both film & digital, transitioning to a dSLR.
My hope is that as you look through the gallery you will find something which inspires you to look more closely around and see the beauty in the small, often overlooked details.
