Inspired by the wish to capture Chicago's diversity and vibrance for posterity, an idea took shape to take "a year-long snapshot of the city," beginning with the first minute of the new millennium and ending with the last minute of the year 2000.
Containing 199 photographs drawn from the Comer Archive of Chicago In The Year 2000 at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Richard J. Daley Library, the images in CITY 2000 capture the lifestyles, architecture, spirituality, and personality of this archetypal American city with passion and creativity.
Weaving through and connecting the pictures are essays, fiction, and poetry from Chicago writers, including Rick Kogan, Studs Terkel, Rosellen Brown, Li-Young Lee, and many more. The volume's thirty-nine photographers include Yvette Marie Dostatni, Ron Gordon, Leah Missbach Day, Zbigniew Bzdak, and Bob Thall.
Review: "It's a great time capsule. A century from now, people will be able to open this book and get a real sense of what it was like to walk along Chicago's streets in our time... A rich work of art and history... This is what I want those people in 2106 to see when they want to know how we lived today." -- Patrick T. Reardon, Chicago Tribune.
