The north coast of Minnesota is the focus of the upcoming âDudley Edmondson: Northern Watersâ exhibit, which opens September 10, 2021 at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) in Winona. Dudley Edmonson is an author, speaker, wildlife photographer and filmmaker from Duluth, Minn. This exhibit features photographs and videos exploring the north shore of Lake Superior, its tributaries, and surrounding waters over four seasons, in their many moods. Dudley’s photographic career spans nearly three decades, and his work has been featured in galleries and in nearly 100 publications around the world. âThe museum is proud to display the work of photographer, videographer, author and outdoor enthusiast Dudley Edmondson,â said Jon Swanson, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at MMAM. âHis knowledge and passion for Minnesota’s wilderness and wildlife inspires us all to get out there and explore the beauty of our state.â Outdoor enthusiast and bird watcher, Edmondson’s passion is nature and people of color outside. He is the author of the flagship book “Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places”,
profiling African Americans in non-traditional vocations and outdoor activities. Edmondson’s goal is to create a set of âoutdoor role modelsâ for the African American community. “Dudley Edmondson: Northern Waters” runs until January 2, 2022.
