The details

Mike MacDonald (born 1960) is an American photographer, photojournalist, speaker, author and conversationalist. MacDonald's photos, primarily featuring prairies, savannas and other natural habitats around the Chicago metropolitan area, are internationally published. MacDonald's original "hyper-real" photographic technique blends concepts from landscape and macro photography to create a three-dimensional, immersive effect in his work. In 2015, MacDonald authored the acclaimed coffee-table book My Journey into the Wilds of Chicago.

Chicago nature

MacDonald's work primarily focuses on the natural habitats of the Chicago area. In 2015, MacDonald authored the coffee-table book My Journey into the Wilds of Chicago: A Celebration of Chicagoland's Startling Natural Wonders, a collection built over two decades of more than 200 photographs and 30 profiles of Chicagoland's prairies, savannas, beaches and forests. Publishers Weekly called the book "celebratory, soulful and poetic," and its photos "glorious."
