Peter Elliott is a commercial photographer who remains enchanted by the grandeur and complexity of the American landscape, both urban and rural. His passion for the textures and contours of Chicago, his home for decades, resulted in Park Life: The Summer of 1977 at Comiskey Park, a book lauded by a wide range of admirers from George F. Will to Mayor Richard M. Daley and from Cubs broadcaster Chip Caray to Colin Westerbeck, curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago. Elliott lives on the west side of Chicago.
