Hello. My name is Anthony Spatara, I am 35 years old and live in the great city of Chicago. I am not a photographer by profession nor do I wish to be. I run two successful Italian restaurants in the downtown area which keep me plenty busy. Photography for me is a way out from what I normally do on a day to day basis. I love walking the streets of any city and Interacting with people, exploring and just capturing images that seem interesting to me. I couldn’t tell you what inspires me to get up at the crack ass of dawn to walk the cold streets of Chicago to photograph. I am just addicted to it.
