Established in 1967, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art has this fantastic sculptural spiral staircase

This is another location that I’d read about beforehand and was keen to photograph

While it’s recommended that you spend time in the museum and actually enjoy the modernist sculptures and instalments, photographers flock here to photograph the building’s staircase

Entry is normally $15 – however as it turned out during the week I was in Chicago there was a private event on in the museum. This unfortunately meant it was essentially closed to the public for the week

I was however able to make my way into this entry area at the bottom of the staircase; however you weren’t able to go up. This meant I was only able to photograph upwards from here at the bottom

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.
