This series of photographs shows a project being undertaken by a woodworking artist in northern Minnesotan. Both the antique instruments and the cases have significant meaning in terms of value. When he is done renovating them, he plans to sell them in Nashville, TN.
I write and shoot photographs because I believe art can be one the most important mediums for exchanging dialogue and creating change. I am a former social worker and am passionate about human rights issues, environmental conservation and the empowerment of women and marginalized communities. I believe in using my pen and camera as grassroots tools to both honor hope and fight oppression in a nonviolent manner.
