I'm a photographer and found in one of the lists this Chicago museum. Next week I'll be at Chi-town and hope to have enough time to visit it. I also found good reviews and essays about photography that were very helpful when I wrote a thesis at the college on this topic at https://writemyessayonline.com/write-my-thesis.html.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography is a must for all. It's a smaller & more intimate museum with a stellar collection of contemporary photography. The space is always brilliantly curated & the works on display are always well considered. Request a private viewing of their amazing collections that contain works from artist like Barbara Crane to current artist who contribute to their Midwest Photographer Project.
