A portion of photographer and conservationist Michael Forsberg’s Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild exhibit is on display at Campbell County Public Library.
From Michael’s website: ”Michael Forsberg is a Nebraska native whose 25-year career as a photographer and conservationist has been dedicated to wildlife and conservation stories in North America’s Great Plains, once one of the greatest grassland ecosystems on Earth. His images have been featured in publications including Audubon, National Geographic, Nature Conservancy, and Outdoor Photographer magazines. His fine art prints are in public and private collections, and his solo exhibitions have traveled nationwide.
“From 2005-2009, Forsberg traveled 100,000 miles crisscrossing the Plains from Canada to Mexico working on a book called Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild. The main goal of the book project was to put a face on and build appreciation of what many from the outside looking in consider “flyover country.” It explores the wildlife, habitats and conservation challenges in the heart of the continent. The exhibition, that in its entirety includes 60 breathtaking photos, opened at Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska in February 2010. It has since traveled to locations across the United States.”
The companion documentary film and book of the same name, Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild, are available to check out from your library system. Forsberg examines what wildness remains in the Great Plains of North America. Featuring brilliant and stunning imagery, Forsberg meets a host of dedicated people working to keep the wildness alive.
