Scope and Content

These exhibition prints were made in 1987 and 1988 under the direction of Stern Bramson in the Photographic Archives darkrooms. The photographs constitute a representative sample of this artist's work and have hung at the O. K. Harris Gallery, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. Stern Bramson inherited the Royal Photo Studio (see also the entry on Royal Photo Studio) in Louisville and worked primarily as a documentary photographer, photographing area businesses, civic concerns, and special events. Late in his career critics discovered the ironical and whimsical themes revealed in much of his documentary work and those images earned fresh appreciation as fine art photography.
