Darryll Schiff (Chicago, 1948)  is an American contemporary artist specializing in photography based in Chicago, Illinois. He is one of Chicago's most influential artists. In 2016 the 24 x 56 foot vinyl mural of his photograph “Descending to Heaven” - illuminated photography mural - was installed at the Wabash Arts Corridor (710 S. Wabash), lactated in Chicago’s South Loop. Schiff pushes the boundaries of what photography can do; using the camera as a tool to paint with, bend and use abstractly rather than as a form of documentation. Some of Schiff's fine art photography is located in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, George Eastman House, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Norton Simon Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
