City of Chicago's reflection upon Cloudgate

This photo mirrors the sublime skyline of Chicago, sans people. It shows that while we have advanced immensely as a people, rising higher and higher in some aspects, the essentials of a society begin to be lost. There are no people in this photograph, because through economic advancement, we have lost our humanity.
