Praise

"The photography of Jonathan Elderfield exposes the deficit of our nearsightedness. In his photographs, the unseen moments that transpire in and around urban Chicago come into focus .... Disorder begets order in Elderfield's compositions, but simple situations also become complex .... If the deft compositions catch your attention, the action depicted in each shot keeps your gaze."
Katherine Jentleson, Art Writer
"His camera picks through Chicago's elegantly rough-edged energy, the textures of its airs and surfaces, from wet and windy to prickly and granitic .... Like some of his predecessors – like Lee Friedlander, Walker Evans, Robert Frank – Elderfield has an eye for the kinetics of urban life caught on the run .... Elderfield's work, including a New York series in progress, seems almost effortless and casual, but that's only how they seem. Those qualities in fact give the pictures their intensity and scrupulousness and testify to the humane inquisitiveness of this photographer's eye."
W. S. Di Piero, Poet, Art Critic, Professor of English and Creative Writing at Stanford University
