You've probably noticed me highlighting a bunch of pics from Señor Codo, aka Chris Diers (you can read more about Señor Codo, and other Chicago street artists, in a great piece by Gapers Block's Shylo Bisnett). That's because he's a hell of a photographer whose documents of the city--particularly of Pilsen--are amazing. Here are a few.

About the last one, Diers writes: "Bonus came through Pilsen one last time before left Chicago. Yes it's true he's leaving the city for awhile but not the scene. This project where he is putting out free art for people to come and take and documenting it has been a pleasure to watch. All the pieces have been really unique. When he is done I believe he will have put out 150 pieces of art painted on found pieces of wood."
