Once a month, in 1970s Chicago, men were allowed to take cameras into underground strip clubs. Michael Abramson, a local photographer, thought it would be more revealing to photograph the men photographing the women. Left in a drawer until now, the resulting images are a fascinating, funny and at times unsettling portrayal of the uninhibited male gaze.

Introduced by Midge Wilson.

Michael Abramson (1948-2011) was an American photographer best known for his work documenting the nightlife of black night clubs on the south side of Chicago. His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of many major American institutions including the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago History Museum, the California Museum of Photography and more.
