Friday, March 22, 2013 – 7 pm
On Friday, March 22, 2013, the Anderson Center in Red Wing, Minnesota, is pleased to present Vanishing Minnesota: An Evening of Photography with Doug Ohman. Free and open to the public, the event is sponsored by the Anderson Center, Goodhue County History Center, the Red Wing Photography Club, and the Red Wing Arts Association.
The evening will begin with a reception for the photographer in the newly restored historic barn at 7:00 p.m., followed by a talk and photography show at 7:30. Throughout the evening, Doug will share his own story of how he took his passion for history and love of photography and combined them to become one of the most successful and acclaimed photographers in the upper Midwest. A book sale and signing will follow at 8:30 p.m..
Along with being an award-winning photographer, Doug Ohman is an author, storyteller, and popular public speaker. His work has been widely published in books, calendars, and numerous state and national magazines. Over the past seven years, Ohman has been working with the Minnesota Historical Society on the popular book series, "Minnesota Byways," which includes Ohman's exquisite photographs, coupled with texts by some of Minnesota finest authors, on the state's vanishing historic sites—churches, barns, courthouses, schoolhouses, cabins, and libraries.
Ohman was born and raised in Anoka, Minnesota, and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in history and geography. Before turning to full-time photography, he worked as the director of operations at the Mall of America's Camp Snoopy. He now makes a living through landscape and historical photography, traveling thousands of miles each year to document his subjects, while at the same time making regular stops at more than 30 art fairs and festivals around the state.
Vanishing Minnesota is made possible in part through generous funding from the Jones Family Foundation, McKnight Foundation, Minnesota Cultural Heritage and Legacy Fund, Minnesota State Arts Board, Target Foundation, and Xcel Energy.
