Gary Stochl (born 1947) is a street photographer who lives in Stickney, Illinois, just outside Chicago. His work is held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and published in the book On City Streets: Chicago 1964-2004. Stochl made photographs for 40 years before showing them to anyone.
Stochl has been taking photographs since he was 17 years old. In the late 1960s he was inspired by the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson. He bought a Leica camera and started taking pictures, his only formal education in photography being a course in high school. Later he was inspired by the work of Robert Frank.
