"They're in the dark ages," says Hauser, who traveled to China in the 1970s as photographer for magician David Copperfield. "In China they don't know how to use strobe equipment. The history of their portraits is very stiff stuff."

A trip to Rizhao, China marked the comeback of Marc Hauser, the great Chicago portrait photographer, who was badly injured on a commercial shoot in 2003 and lost the use of his right eye. Grant Pick profiled Hauser for the Reader in 1987. While looking for information about Hauser's mentor, fashion photographer Stan Malinowski, I found this great shot of the Hancock building. Malinowski took the picture from Michigan City; the rest of Chicago is hidden by the curvature of the earth.
