Selected photographic work of Southside Chicago Artist Mike Pocius 

Mike Pocius is a constantly wandering urban explorer taking notes on the state of our metropolis by way of his Nikon film camera and of late, shooting color digital images; People, places, things, the mundane, the minute, the glorious, the profane, the real in reality. 
At times, the camera focused on grim realities our eyes would rather glance around. Mike calls his visual studies a kind of "Urban Archaeology" where by all this graphic evidence when stitched together paints a capacious picture of one artist subjective view of our urban enviornment.
 
On view at the studio is an overview of the artist past and newest work. The artist states, "My work is pretty much street photography built on the foundations of the great ones, such as Robert Frank and Andre Kertex. I try to bring this tradition into the twenty first century.
