The ironic, the iconic, the peculiar and the poignant:Our Minnesota State Fair

Debra Goldstein has been taking photographs of the Minnesota State Fair for several years. This is her first solo show exhibiting this collection.

About this show, she writes: Welcome to this taste of BeyondtheStick.com, my annual scavenger hunt for the ironic and iconic; the peculiar and the poignant; the colorful and the oh-so-human moments at our Great Minnesota State Fair.

Long before I became a photographer, I found myself drawn to - and energized by - our big, communal events, where we meet, merge, collide, and create a tapestry rich in human connection. It became my desire to focus and frame these moments, and then to share them, thereby creating yet another level of connection. I do believe the shortest distance between two people is a shared moment.

By capturing “life, as it happens,” I hope to enrich lives, as mine has been made full, with an expanded awareness of the moment, so that we experience in-sight, and the grace and grounding of full-focused living.

Opening Reception - Saturday, August 1st from 6pm to 9pm

Gallery Talk - Tuesday, August 11th beginning at 7pm
