 In the years 1882-1892, Henry Peter Bosse (1844-1903) travelled the Upper Mississippi River Valley, as a member of the United States Army Corps of Engineers, while engaged in a serious and historic undertaking as a photographer. Some 100 years later, Bosse’s navigational maps in hand, St. Paul native Chris Faust has been carefully re-photographing the same views as Bosse, from exactly the same sites, aided by modern GPS coordinates and the help of the Army Corps navigational maps. Join us for a discussion with photographer Chris Faust about this exhibit. Event in Mississippi Room, all ages welcome.
