How Photographs Form Us: What Do You See?

Celebrated photographer Wing Young Huie has captured the complex cultural realities of American society for over 35 years. His photos have been shown in international museums — over half a million people viewed his traveling exhibit in China — but his best known works, Lake Street USA and the University Avenue Project, were epic public art projects that transformed Minneapolis and Saint Paul thoroughfares into six-mile photo galleries, reflecting the everyday lives of thousands of its citizens.
