He has created an amazing body of photography, and a great collection of his images can be seen via a slideshow on his site. But among his obvious experience, artistry and technical skill, he most amazed the editor of Chicago Art Magazine by using a Loupe Magnifier to examine the review screen on his digital camera to make sure he’d gotten the shot.

DeGrane’s black & white documentary work has been exhibited at the Chicago Cultural Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Corcoran Gallery among others. He has documented the Illinois Prison System extensively with photos appearing in international publications and academic journals.
