Project Overview
Artist Initiative
Project Details
Faust will go back to the original sites that Henry Peter Bosse used to make his historic images of the Mississippi River in the 1880’s. He will photograph from the same Minnesota locations as Bosse to provide a historic record of how the riverfront has changed in the intervening 125 years. The photographs will be displayed at various locations around Minnesota.
