Meet the Great River Passage Photographers in Residence
Local Photographers Monica Bryand, Erin D. Carter, and Chris Juhn have been selected to offer a fresh, compelling approach to photographing the experience of the Mississippi River in Saint Paul. The photographers’ growing image library will be featured here in our digital gallery and will culminate in a published project at the end of the residency in December 2017.
The three photographers have diverse perspectives, high-quality portfolios, and unique strengths and styles, from photojournalism to wildlife photography. Read more about each photographer below:
Public photo contest
We are launching a photo contest to gather photos of the Mississippi River. To participate in the photo contest, people can post pictures of the Mississippi River in Saint Paul to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #STPriver. Winning photos that capture the river in one of the four categories below will be chosen on a monthly basis. Winners will be featured online and published as a part of the culminating project for the Great River Passage photography residency. The Great River Passage will use select photos on its website and social media accounts. Winners must follow the Great River Passage on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
