“I walked into a timeless place … full of supporting actors and actresses of every conceivable role,” Abramson wrote in Light: On the South Side, published by Chicago’s Numero Group in 2009. “Scarves, jumpsuits, and elegant hats are on display along with dancing, drinking, and smoking, but what’s most arresting here is the subtle beauty of human interaction.”
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.
