Charles Swedlund: Circa 1955

Charles Swedlund: Circa 1955 at Stephen Daiter Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...Charles Swedlund, Chicago born and bred, attended Lane Tech High School before he discovered the city's renowned Institute of Design, America's answer to the great German Bauhaus. As an artist Swedlund spent his life combining aesthetics and technologies to create a stunning body of photographic works both beautiful and intellectually rigorous. Until now, Swedlund has remained largely unknown to the collecting public, despite his inclusion in countless exhibitions and museum collections, and a thirty-year teaching career that included authorship of one of the standard texts in the field, Photography: A Handbook of History, Materials,and Processes."
