Exhibition: David Husom's Upper Mississippi River Project

Friday, October 5, 2018

Local photographer David Husom depicts the upper Mississippi River Valley from a new and unique perspective. For the past two years Husom has been photographing the area with a UAV (drone). These large scale 360 degree panorama photographs show the river, towns, bluffs and farmlands of the Driftless area. His camera bends the 360 degree landscape as aerial views reveal overlooked shapes and facets of our region’s topography.
A selection of these photographs will be at the Anderson Center in this fall as part of a one person exhibit of Husom’s work. Upper Mississippi River Project includes over two dozen photographs, some more than 80” wide. From Hastings to Camp Pepin to Winona, the entire region is represented, including lovely images of the Anderson Center and Red Wing. The opening reception is Friday, October 5 from 7–9 pm, and the exhibition will be on view through November 21st.
David Husom is a widely-recognized photographer whose work has been shown in prestigious museums including the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and published in Aperture. His work has been collected by many museums and private collections across the country. Husom has been making photographs for more than 50 years.
