Chicago images painted with light and love

We began this business in 1987 by publishing a real estate newspaper.

A regular feature of the weekly paper in its early days was Kardas’ Chicago, a striking image from photographer Michael Kardas.

Whether the subject was a homeless person, a half-built building, mounted police or a streetscape, it was always painted with the elements that are his email signature – “light and love.”

Four years ago we sent Michael out to photograph River North – and these are a few of the shots from that assignment.


After more than twenty-six years we’re still working with Michael, and between assignments he’s still painting Chicago with light and love. You can follow him around the city on his Facebook page.
