From the introduction:

We live and work in Chicago, a city with some of the country’s best traditional and non-traditional photography incubators. Some of our schools – like The School of Art Institute, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Columbia College – have especially distinguished instructors and programs. And in the past few years, we have seen the rise of a generation of artists, from all these places, making a dent in the international art market. Chicago also has some of the best collections of photography in the world. The Art Institute has an incredible diversity of works, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography has over 9,000 pieces, including art by many photographic pioneers. Because we are in close proximity to these artists, instructors, and institutions, their influence plays a significant role in what we see in Chicago.
