    Join us for a discussion with photographer Chris Faust about his exhibit on display at the St. Cloud Public Library. Event in Mississippi Room on the main floor of the library, all ages welcome.

    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.

    Funded with money from Minnesota's Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
