Next week Mill Chicago is moving to a new expanded studio in the West Loop. To celebrate our new neighborhood, Mill Colourist Luke Morrison headed down there and spent the morning exploring and taking pictures.
The West Loop holds an iconic place in Chicago's history. Starting off as the "Meatpacking District", it's still full of cobbled streets and expansive warehouses. Mixed with this, the area is now home to the Midwest's growing technology hub with innovation giants like Google moving in.
Luke's mission was to capture the colours and shapes around our new home, and celebrate the story of this enterprising area. Go on a tour across the West Loop with Luke and take in the red brick, rusty trucks and beautiful blue skies.
Head over and follow @mill_chi on Instagram for a new picture every day this week.
"I loved the light coming in across all the different materials here - the old brick, metal and glass" (Luke)
"I'm always intrigued by entrances and what's behind them."
"This felt like a scene you could have seen in the area 20 or 30 years ago. The red colour palette and man in the shadows are great."
"An unmistakable classic Ford."
"A classic Fulton Market scene with a great mix of colour tones and palettes."
"I was playing with angles here, while showing off some of the area's historic meat market sites."
"A wide angle for a wide load!"
"One of the most historic buildings on Randolph Street."
