Entrance to Elevated - Randolph at Lake, Chicago

Joel Snyder
Entrance to Elevated - Randolph at Lake, Chicago, 1967

A historian of photography and professor at the University of Chicago, Snyder's work in the 1960s was focused on Chicago and its buildings. This image highlights the complexity of an everyday structure - one of Chicago's many elevated train platforms - as passengers appear to be swallowed up by the structure.
