Dawn Mikulich, November 2002"Chicago is a lovely city. From the rusty old Sears chain link fence to the enormous skyline, there is beauty everywhere. You have to take the time to look."

"In everyday life, there are so many details that seep into the background. Photography has forced me to recognize and enjoy them. My hope is that Chicago Uncommon helps others open their eyes wide enough to discover the area's hidden treasures."
