Winters in Chicago are too cold and too long for its people to survive without getting fucked up all the time. Similarly, the summers in Illinois are so painfully short that living there means you have to squeeze all of your outside fun and debauchery into just a couple of months per year. It seems like a pretty shitty deal, until you realize how cheap the rent is compared with New York or LA. I've hated this city and I've loved this city. I've moved now, but I already miss it. Mostly because Brooklyn doesn’t have any alleys and it looks like I'm finally going to get a public urination ticket. See more of Adam's work here.
