Michael Salisbury’s latest endeavour all started with the idea of documenting Chicago’s skyline; one of the most famed in America.
When many of the resulting exposures were notably impeded by cars and foot traffic, Michael then decided to try cloning out the obstructions by stitching together multiple images, all captured in 80 glorious megapixels. Named “Chicago Minus Chicago” the gallery evokes a very 28 Days Later-esque vibe, showcasing the city as many people would never see it.
Salisbury notes “Once I saw my results of the first empty image, I was hooked, and decided to make it a project in itself. I also drew from projects like ‘Tokyo Nobody’ by photographer Masataka Nakano and ‘Empty LA’ by Matt Logue as a source of inspiration.”
