Witness: Stuart Klipper
January 26 – March 17, 2019
Artist Reception and Gallery Talk, January 30
Stuart Klipper is an internationally known fine art photographer based in Minneapolis who has spent decades traveling the planet capturing photographs that crystallize the defining characteristics of many countries and regions, including the Sinai, Central and South America, Svalbard, Sri Lanka and Alaska. He has also worked frequently in Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland and other Nordic regions.
Following the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, Klipper returned to the area of northern Sweden that he had fallen in love with earlier, which is also known as the Sápmi region, the indigenous homeland of the Sami people. Klipper witnessed and photographed a forever altered landscape and an impacted culture. The images were created with support from the McKnight Foundation and were originally exhibited at the Minnesota Museum of American Art.
