Frogtown
Photographs and Conversations in an Urban Neighborhood
Paperback      ISBN: 0873513363
Frogtown is a discerning portrait of an ethnically mixed neighbourhood that lies within the shadow of the Minnesota State Capital near downtown St. Paul. Wing Young Huie combines 130 compelling black-and-white photographs, some 50 quotes from talks with residents, and his own commentary to produce a powerful depiction of life on Frogtown's streets and front porches, in its kitchens and backyards, shops and churches. The images are documentary in nature, but the perspective is that of an artist who leaves meanings open to interpretation. Drawn to Frogtown by his own abiding curiosity, Huie spent two years photographing and getting to know its people — working class whites, Southeast Asian immigrants, African Americans, American Indians, and Latinos. These exquisitely rendered images of Frogtown show the multiple realities that make up a dynamic urban neighbourhood. At the same time, they reflect the changing faces of American cities.

The Spirit of the Land
Hardcover      ISBN: 0896583104
Finalist, Minnesota Book Awards. The spirit of Minnesota lives in many things. It is a radiant dawn breaking through the pines of the North Woods. It is the unceasing pounding of waves on the rocky North Shore of Lake Superior. It is the delicate fragrance of prickly wild roses in the Heartland. It is the timeless flow of the Mississippi River carving its way through the Bluff Country. It is the wind through the tall grasses of the Prairie region. This is the spirit of the land that is Minnesota. Minnesota: The Spirit of the Land is the first collaboration between Douglas Wood, author of the ward-winning Old Turtle, and photographer Greg Ryan. It is a tribute to the state’s enduring heritage a look at the soul of the state’s wilderness and what that spirit means to its people.
