Colburn Hvidston III made a career in news, documenting life in the Upper Midwest with the cameras he wielded for decades as a Fargo Forum
photographer. Truth in Focus
explores Hvidston’s career, stretching back to his childhood, through his years with the Forum
, and into retirement. The result is an intimate, local look at life around the Red River Valley during the last half of the 20th century. Reflecting on his career later, Hvidston wrote, “We newspaper photographers strive to record reality in a way that triggers the emotions, many times evoking feelings in the viewer to an extent that goes far beyond what the written word alone is capable of.” Stop in at the Hjemkomst Center and see for yourself.
Also, please join us for a free and public opening reception on Tuesday, July 16, from 5:00PM to 8:00PM. Light refreshments will be served with champagne and Colburn will share remarks at 6:00PM.
