Testaments in Wood: Finnish Log Structures at Embarrass, Minnesota

Sold Out

The art of an exceptional photographer captures the artistry of the builder in these images of Finnish-American farmsteads built around the turn of the century in northern Minnesota. Wayne Gudmundson's photographs are marked by the same clarity and simplicity as the traditionally crafted log structures they record. The buildings are compelling testaments in wood to the Finnish heritage and the stalwart, stubborn spirit of the Embarrass community.
