As part of this fall’s shared-text project on Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma at Itasca Community College, on Thursday, Sept. 12, there is a special event offering some different vantage points on farming. That day marks the opening of an exhibit of John Connelly’s photography, Homegrown, portraits of northern Minnesota farmers. In addition to the images of farmers, ICC English faculty member Lisa Marcis will read from her poetry chapbook, “In Grain,” poems about the North Dakota farm and farm community where she grew up. The opening will last from 4-7 p.m. in Davies Lobby, with the reading and artist’s talk starting at 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.

John Connelly is a freelance photographer based in northern Minnesota. A graduate of the University of Minnesota and the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, John pursues projects that focus on social, environmental, and out-state Minnesota issues. Homegrown is a collection of images from his evolving effort to photograph Itasca County residents who are growing and producing food for themselves and for others. He seeks in this work to explore the beauty and complexity of rural life.
