Hello there. I’ve just launched a Kickstarter over at bitly.com/EavesKick. I’m not asking for a donation (although it is fine if you do). Rather, I’m offering 7 prints featured on this site as rewards for backing my campaign at certain levels. Prints are produced at […]
Definitely not an “original” composition here, as I literally took it at a place called “Photography Point.” Nonetheless, I love this spot when the early-morning sun hits the buildings just-so. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Grey Chicago [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at […]
Hello there. I’ve just launched a Kickstarter over at bitly.com/EavesKick. I’m not asking for a donation (although it is fine if you do). Rather, I’m offering 7 prints featured on this site as rewards for backing my campaign at certain levels. Prints are produced at a professional lab, and I’ll sign and send them to you at the conclusion of the campaign. And you won’t get a silly signature on a mat. You’ll get an actual signature on the print. By supporting my campaign, you’ll help fund my first adventure in selling prints and setting up an LLC. My campaign goal is modest—$500. That’s it. I’m not looking to build a day-to-day operation. I have a day job that I love. But too many people have encouraged me to sell my prints for me to ignore any longer. I only have until July 3 to reach the funding goal. So please, spread the word, follow the campaign, and, if you are able, please become a backer.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
PS, the 7 photos available in 5×7 and 8×10 are:
I love the complexities of something so ubiquitous that we take it for granted. Again, you can see all kinds of scratches and imperfections on the emulsion. Nevertheless, I like the imperfections and the grain. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 29, 2018). Power Tower No. 3 [Photograph]. Addison, Illinois. […]
Back into medium format photos, and the first of 4 industrial shots over in Addison, Illinois. Here we see a plane on approach to O’Hare. You can see where I scratched the emulsion in the lower-right corner.

The final entry in this 4-part series, we return to Cary, Illinois. The rusted-tin roof of this low-slung outbuilding marked a gathering spot for some kind of local hike. The foundation of a long-gone building sits in the foreground. Eaves, Chris (Oct. 13, 2018). Americana Still […]
I stumbled across this barn in Cary, Illinois. The local park district maintains the facility and surrounding fields, and the high-clouds and the late-evening sun made for a beautiful setting.

Today I kick-off a quick 4-part Americana series. We had a wet year in 2018, and sometimes that extra water makes for extra-interesting opportunities. The good people over at All Seasons Orchard in Woodstock, Illinois, set up a beautiful still-life scene with a wet spot in […]
After a trip to the wonderful Lodge at Starved Rock State Park, we take our obligatory hike up the infamous hill, look out at the Illinois River, and ponder life in the era of canoes and trappers.
