Jordan Exhibit Takes You Back To the Bulls' Glory Days

The exhibit, entitled "Open Air," is open at Chicago's Field Museum until Sept.8.

Chicago- Some relationships come at the perfect time.

For Michael Jordan and renowned Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss, it was in the 1980s.

At that time, both were peaking in their respective industries. Jordan was not only taking the Chicago Bulls to the center of the national stage, but he was also taking over the international stage as a member of the U.S. Olympic team.

Iooss spent time documenting the Hall of Famer and recalled Jordan as "charming" and "easy" to photograph.

He wanted to do this for the city of Chicago after seeing an outdoor exhibit in Paris more than two decades ago. 

The 30 photos are part of the exhibit entitled "Open Air" and will be at the Field Museum until September 8th.
