Portraits from the Park: Comiskey Park Photographs, 1973-1990 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chicagoandrsquo;s old Comiskey Park, home to the White Sox until 1990, is as essential to the cityandrsquo;s cultural history as it is to baseballandrsquo;s. From the first day that Thomas W. Harney set out to photograph fans in the ballpark, he felt at home there, owing to memories of games with his father and grandfather. It became his ongoing subject, as well as a setting that would inspire his growing reputation as a street photographer.
The sequence of portraits Harney took of White Sox fans between 1973 and the last game played at the parkandmdash;September 30, 1990andmdash;captures the essence of baseball fandom: pregame excitement, exploration of the ballpark, the quiet moments in between plays, the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat. Most importantly, these portraits capture the aura of andldquo;Old Comiskey,andrdquo; a ballpark that looms large in the memories of Chicagoans and baseball fans alike.
