Then and Now: Blue Earth County Through the Lens
Then and Now is a collaborative project between The Bend of the River Photography Club and Blue Earth County Historical Society to document places in Blue Earth County through the camera lens. For this project, Photo Club members chose a historic image from the extensive collection at the History Center. They then re-photographed buildings and locations around Blue Earth County by standing where another photographer stood years prior.
The Photo Club is documenting history today. Years from now these photographs, printed and carefully stored at the Blue Earth County Historical Society, will be available for the next generation. The Photo Club hopes viewers will enjoy their photographs as much as they enjoyed recreating the ones from the past. Then and Now: Blue Earth County Through the Lens is on display at the History Center Art Gallery through December 29, 2018.
Free and open to the public.
