Every time we come home after a long trip, we love the way Chicago's skyline welcomes us back -- with twinkling lights and the jagged shadows of skyscrapers against the night sky.
Artist Michael Wolf was impressed too. So impressed, he decided to create a photo exhibition documenting Chicago's architecture from unusual vantage points, and then applying a creative (and rather voyeuristic) eye to the photo editing.
The exhibit, called The Transparent City, has been on display at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College. Select pieces are going to the Stephen Daiter Gallery (311 W. Superior) through February.
To welcome the work, the gallery is hosting a reception Friday night from 5-8 p.m. Kick off the weekend with a look -- you may see a new side to the city you thought you knew so well.
