where nobody lives

All the images in this mini portfolio were made over the past 3 months in an area smaller than 1 square mile, in Markham, IL.

I’d driven through the area before but this was the 1st time I had photographed there.

Obviously, the area is in rough shape. But there’s something beautiful there, too.

The area kind of reminds me of the Tom Waites song, The House where Nobody Lives.

If you click on the images, you can see what they looked like 5 years ago via Street View.

Most had a lot more life in them in 2012.
