“This is as close as a lot of us could ever have got, and luckily, it’s pretty close. If we are ever given the chance to go back there, we now know where to go, what to wear, what to drink, what to smoke, what to drive, how to dance, how close we can get—like a good novelist, Abramson is particularly attuned to relationships and how to frame them. “ – Nick Hornby (2009), Light On the South Side, Published by The Numero Group Recording Co.
All prints from 1970s South Side Chicago series are available for purchase as the singular works or as the group of images. All works are Vintage Silver Gelatin prints made by the photographer at the time there were taken. All prints can be purchased in bespoke hardwood frames, museum mount board and anti-reflective UV protective Art Glass. If you wish to ship or purchase unframed prints, we are happy to arrange that for you.
Michael Abramson's photographs can be found in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago History Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, and the California Museum of Photography.
