Last Thursday night I went to the release party (at the Museum of Contemporary Photography) for a beautiful, moving new book, Richard Nickel’s Chicago. Authors Richard Cahan and Michael Williams gave a brief but insight-laden talk about the work and legacy of Nickel, an architectural photographer whose crusade to save Chicago’s classic buildings from the wrecking ball ultimately led him to his death on a demolition site.

I’ve been fascinated by Nickel’s story ever since I first came across Cahan’s They All Fall Down: Richard Nickel’s Struggle to Save America’s Architecture. And I was thinking I’d write more about it here, but then on Sunday I saw that my colleague, Donna Seaman, had saved me the trouble with her extended review in the Chicago Tribune Books section.

Where They All Fall Down focuses on Nickel’s life, Richard Nickel’s Chicago focuses on his art, which has been understandably overlooked given the tragically romantic outlines of his life.

Anyway, see what Donna has to say.
