John Soss May 2020.jpg

John Soss is a Chicagoan/Chicagoer. His spare time over the past decade has mostly been spent scouring the beaches of Chicago, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin in search of a wide variety of manmade and natural things. Whatever he brings home gets distilled into a layout that he documents with a photograph each day. Over time he has experimented with more elaborate designs featuring like-minded objects. These photographs have been exhibited in a Chicago gallery operated by artist Tony Fitzpatrick and his works have been featured in the Chicago Tribune, New City Magazine, WGN Radio and Esthetic Lens Magazine. 

"After a couple of thousand beach walks along Lake Michigan, I'm continually amazed at what washes up each day and somewhat distressed knowing that our citizenry treats the lake with such carelessness."
