Angie is a fine art and commercial architecture photographer based in Chicago who brings a detailed, thoughtful perspective to her work. Having grown up surrounded by nature yet fascinated by the big city she's called home for nearly two decades, she brings the meditative calm of her upbringing to a terrain that's always transforming. Focusing more frequently on bold architectural details rather than sweeping cityscapes, her photographs celebrate those unexpectedly iconic elements hiding in plain sight. From landmark buildings she distills the essential lines and textures that frame the city. McMonigal sees these structures as actively shaping, and shaped by, human activity; they are never mere backdrop. Steel and brick towers are presented as quilts rich with history, solid structures soar with soul, and concrete edifices echo the lofty ambition of planners and dreamers.
