David Husom Print Projects
From a series documenting the vernacular architecture of the small towns in the Upper Mississippi River valley. In particular the series explores the places of community gathering: churches, taverns, town halls and organization meeting halls. This is an ongoing series, 40 images from the series are shown here in two portfolios (Select the images above and below). Prints are 22X28 and 30X40.
From a series documenting the architecture of county and state fairgrounds. I spent three years photographing all of Minnesota's 93 county fairgrounds. I returned to the project in the mid-90s and photographed fairground architecture extensively in Iowa and Wisconsin and 17 other states. The series contains over 100 images, 20 of which are shown here. (Select the image above).
Prints are 22X28 and 17X22.

Fremont Street, Las Vegas 2010
Originally envisioned as a Web based slide show using Adobe Flash Catalyst, this series of digital camera photographs were taken in downtown Las Vegas during a 24 hour period in August 2010. Now available in magazine format as well, the series explores the circus of activity that is the "Fremont Experience." (Select the image above).
This Flash project was created between December 1999 and January 2000. All photographs were made with a digital camera. This series of images explores the preparations, events and celebrations leading up to the new millennium in Japan. In the process it gives a look at Japanese culture. To view the QuickTime VR 360 degree panorama photos you will need the QuickTime plug-in. (Select the image above).
This project is an interactive tour of 1982 Asia and Europe. It includes images of Hong Kong, Japan, a vintage 1920's Russian steamer crossing the Japan Sea, a ride on the Trans-Siberian train across the then Communist country of the Soviet Union, the Scandinavian countryside and the capitals of Northern Europe. In addition it includes excerpts from the photographers' journal entries as they explore the world and learn about the ups and downs of taking a four month journey.
Postcard Journal contains over 100 photographs taken by Ann-Marie Rose and David Husom. Originally exhibited at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and Film in the Cities in St. Paul Minnesota as multimedia slide shows it was recreated in 1996 with Macromedia Director as a Macintosh based CD-ROM. It was recreated again in 1999 for the web. (Select the image above).
