Lee Balterman’s Chicago (1950’s)


Lee Balterman (American, 1920- ) was born at Augustana Hospital in Chicago. After graduating high school in 1938, he went on to take evening classes in drawing and painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago – the only formal training of his career. At 86, he continues to live and photograph almost daily in Chicago.
