Devil in the White City

July 23, 2014

What do you do when you're trapped in Chicago during the polar vortex? Take portraits of your friends nearly freezing to death trying to get that nicotine fix. Obviously.

"Devil in the White City" was the name of a historical book a few years back about the Chicago World's Fair and a serial murderer. Did you have that book in mind for this title?

Yknow, I thought maybe so. Given that background the picture communicates to me better. Thanks for the followup.
