Hack and City of Destiny (tie)

Chicago’s long been a city of determined archivists and innovative storytellers, from Ben Hecht to Studs Terkel to Timuel Black. Here are two for the new generation.

Hack Dmitry Samarov, an art school-trained cabbie, records his fares in sketches, watercolors, and words, each post a perfectly formed miniature of lives in transit.

City of Destiny If Richard Nickel had had a digicam and a Flickr account, he might have had an oeuvre like Katherine of Chicago’s. She’s an obsessive, gutsy documenter of abandoned buildings, architectural details, and civic errata; the Chicago History Museum is advised to set aside a hard drive.

Arrow, —Whet Moser
