This self-made one-year project closes with the joy of remaining an archive.

The published articles and interviews will remain online; many of the creative works–and the makers of these works–are now showcased in numerous non digital venues; in short, the project feels complete.

if you are a first-time visitor, you’re invited to peruse the pages of this blog: see the variety and the read the authors’ intentions behind their work. 

Here was the premise: after suggesting, selecting, and searching what surrounds the Minnesota photo community, this blog attempted to interact and incite participation, offering an alternative venue to discover the art of the moment whether it be in process, yet-to-be-exhibited, or already on public view.

In closing, as an author my primary goal was to give voice to what I wasn’t seeing around me in my community at a particular point in time–and to offer, in as much depth as I could, a more full image of what I see around me.

Thanks for reading, Tucker

When MPB began, I thought of the e-project as a way to connect digital readers with photography. It’s a mission I feel is central to the initiative of the blog because conversation about and around Minnesota photography seemed to be infrequent and unorganized. 

However, for over nine months I’ve unexpectedly and surprisingly found myself away from Minnesota. And even more, as my professional opportunities dramatically increased, I found myself having to devote more and more time to the business requirements of my art.  Enough with the explanations for this period of silence.

In the coming months, MPB will revamp its content to include not only interviews such as those appearing in the blog previously, but more features–including meditations and guest writing.

Looking forward to continuing the conversation.  Thanks for reading.

More soon.

Very best wishes, 

Tucker Hollingsworth
