I am very happy and proud to say that Two Way Lens, a project of German photographer Michael Werner, has chosen me for this months interview in his online series interviews and portfolios of international photographers.

I am in good company and I admit to being a big fan of Michael's own work. Here is the link to the interview. 2waylens.blogspot.de/2012/07/david-husom.html

Holiday Celebration of the Arts, Anderson Center Red WIng 
Saturday, December 10, 2011, 02:34 PM
I am once again in the annual winter show at the Anderson Center in Red Wing. This year I decided to do something a bit different. It is a 15 inch X 60 inch panorama of Stockholm Wisconsin taken from across Lake Pepin. It was shot from our campsite on the Minnesota side of the river on a beautiful fall night this past October.

It is a part of my ingoing series of images of Wisconsin HIghway 35. It is the first, but not the last pano I will add to this body of work.

A detail of the image showing the "downtown" area of Stockholm is on the right. Select the image to see a larger detail of the work.

In the Heart of the Whirlwind: Tornadoes in Art, Myth, Poetry, and Song 
Friday, January 21, 2011, 10:13 PM
June 14th 1981 a tornado did what everyone always says tornados do not do. It hit the center of the city in Minneapolis and the first ring suburbs of St. Paul. It killed one person and damaged parkland in Minneapolis and a number of stores in Roseville, just north of St. Paul. It is known as the Lake Harriet Tornado in Minneapolis and the Har Mar Tornado in St. Paul.

The next morning I grabbed my 4X5 camera and went to see the damage in the Uptown area of Minneapolis. I primarily shot around Lakewood Cemetery top left and Lyndale Farmstead Park between 38th and 40th on Kings Highway (Dupont Ave) lower rIght.

I processed the film and made contact sheets but never did anything with the shots. I had long forgotten about the tornado photographs when Robert Hedin from the Anderson Center in Red Wing asked me if I had any photographs for a show he was curating on tornadoes. I said I really did not think I had anything.

A few months later I realized that I had photographed not just one, but the aftermath of two tornadoes. I had shot the Harriet one in 1981 and one in Hutchinson Minnesota in 1983. I dug out the contacts and he and I picked out some images for the show including the two shown here (Click on the images to see a larger photo).

It is a great show. A special treat is Scott Murphy, a painter from Duluth Minnesota, is also in the show. We had been in a show together once before, and I have printed for him for quite a few years now, but we had never met in person. He has a great painting of a tornado in the show.

Get by to see the show if you are in the Red Wing area. It is at the Anderson Center until March 19th.
