Empty Lots

 
For his "Empty Lots" series photographer Chad Gerth documented the empty lots found within Chicago's territory. The photographs that make up this series are as flat and square as the land they depict. They are taken from above, 40-80’ high. From this perspective we see traces of past purposes and patterns of use that are not visible from the ground. This reveals not only the human past, but nature’s strategies for reclaiming the land.
