Matt Hucke is a UNIX programmer and Internet consultant living in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. He has been exploring, photographing, and writing about Chicago cemeteries since 1995. His images of graveyards have appeared in both editions of Chicago Haunts: Ghostlore of the Windy City, the American Girls News, and the Washington Post, and have been used online by the Chicago Historical Society and the San Diego Union-Tribune.
In 1996 Hucke created the Web site that inspired this book, Graveyards of Chicago, which can be found at www.graveyards.com. The site has since grown to include over 600 photographs.
Hucke's favorite Chicago graveyard is Rosehill.
