> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition looks at two bodies of work by Jon Fjortoft, a largely self-taught, Chicago-based photographer.

First, his landscape portraits of manufacturing plants in the suburbs show pared down compositions and strange landscapes that emphasize the surreal quality of these relics. These are accompanied by Fjortoft’s “street photographs” that use his strong sense of formal composition to reveal keen observations of people in downtown Chicago.
