Evanston, IL 60201

The images in Anthony Iacuzzi's exhibition titled "Polytonal" are a combination of monochromatic and color images of buildings located in Chicago's central business district. Some of the buildings captured by Iacuzzi with his digital SLR are iconic and easily recognizable, such as the main entrance to the Civic Opera House, or a south view of the Auditorium Building. While others are anonymous, generic and/or abstract. A few of the images vividly contrast architectural styles by superimposing one upon another in the frame. In the image titled "Mondo Condo," taken in 2016, he focuses on the residential skyscrapers that have come to populate that part of the city. In this series, Iacuzzi endeavors to "showcase the inherent beauty of some of the structures that make Chicago world famous for its wealth of architectural styles and innovation."
