The Legislative Reference Library is pleased to have Star Tribune photographer Glen Stubbe's engaging photographs of the Senate and the Capitol on display in the Library's Senate location. Come see them soon--or stop by during a reception for Glen's exhibit on Thursday, January 19 from 9:30-11. Cookies will be served!
Glen's Star Tribune colleague, Briana Bierschbach, wrote words of introduction to Glen's exhibit:
At the Minnesota Capitol, the state Senate is the stately upper chamber, where senators and reporters must follow a dress code and decorum tends to prevail over fiery passions. But it can also be a place of warmth, where political rivals share a prayer, freshly baked bars and pat on the back after a grueling debate.
As a staff photographer for the Star Tribune, Glen Stubbe is often in the room where it happens, capturing both the debates that shape state policy and the little moments that show the humanity of the institution. He taps into a deep understanding of his source material and relationships developed over many years to capture moments others don't.
These images pull back the curtain on government in a way no words could ever convey.
