This series of images were inspired and created in response to the epic Li-Young Lee poem “The City in Which I Love You”.
“Mary Livoni’s artistic universe makes gorgeous out of grit, lets you look at Chicago simultaneously as it is and could be, causes you to think about this city and wonder if you know it as well as you thought or perhaps better. In Mary’s work, snow blurs into clouds, and exhaust into haze, stars into neon. “
