Overview

From the one-room chapel in a prairie town to the grandiose cathedral on a city street, churches stand at the heart of the Minnesota landscape. For many, churches embody the spiritual history of their towns and neighborhoods. In Churches of Minnesota, photographer Doug Ohman and award-winning writer Jon Hassler come together to honor these magnificent architectural icons and share the stories of faith that built and now sustain these sacred spaces.

 

Through the seasons, Doug Ohman has traveled to every corner of Minnesota to document the beauty of the state’s most evocative church structures of present and past. Here Ohman showcases one hundred of his most exquisite interior and exterior shots with a colorful survey of a broad range of architecture. 

 

In the "sure-handed, honest language” (New York Times) for which he is renowned, Hassler reflects on his own spirituality and his evolving faith in the church and its people. A graceful complement to Ohman’s images, Hassler’s remembrances chronicle how one’s connection with these spiritual grounds grows and changes with the milestones of life.
