Charles Chamblis Photography Collection

Filed under: Podcasts and Slideshows — Lori Williamson @ 4:41 pm

From family reunions to the nightclub scene, there is no one who documented the Twin Cities Black community like Charles Chamblis. Affectionately called “The Pictureman,” he had a passion for photography and a knack for being everywhere at the right time. The Minnesota Historical Society is thrilled to have a collection of over 2,000 of his images documenting life in the 1970-1980s.

Sights, Sounds and Soul: Twin Cities Through the Lens of Charles Chamblis is a new exhibit of his work, opening at the Minnesota Historical Society on April 26, 2014.

And join us for Retrorama: a celebration of fashion of the 70-80s on May 16, 2014!
