Richard Cahan

Richard Cahan and Michael Williams have teamed up to produce twelve books. Most are based on long-lost archives or photographic collections. Called "the eloquent archival sleuthing duo" by Booklist magazine's Donna Seaman, they have written award-winning books about photography, art, and history, including two on Vivian Maier, the reclusive nanny whose discovered photographic work has become a worldwide sensation. They specialize in Chicago photographs and both live in Chicago.
