Heinrich’s photography captures the hustle and bustle and beauty of Chicago's lakefront. The photo was taken from a helicopter as Heinrich dangled out an open door secured by a large seat belt with the buckle taped shut. He used a medium-large format camera and high-speed film.

Chicago native Bruce Heinrich began his involvement with photography at age fourteen and has worked in the field ever since. He also collects old photographs documenting beautiful Chicago.
