For those of you who may not be so familiar with the international professional soccer scene…Mr. Bakary Soumare, is a Malian born professional soccer player, who played as a defender for the Chicago Fire during the 2008 and 2009 seasons and currently plays in Europe for the US Boulogne in France’s Ligue 1.
Bakary called me the other day and was wondering whether I would photograph his condominium that has been in the making for the past year in Chicago’s Wicker Park area. My eyes started clicking as he described it to me and his dwelling turned out be a very slick, functional space with a very contemporary design. Despite the rain and dreary looking conditions outside, representative of the rainy spring we have had this year in Chicago, the space shows very nicely and the rooftop terrace is absolutely phenomenal. A very nice place for a very nice person.
So without further ado, here is a multimedia show from the shoot, stills are below. Enjoy.
