Writing about MMAM’s Shutterbug: The Mid-Century Photography of David Tewes AAA says, “See a Minnesota-born WWII soldier’s Kodachrome take on postwar America during this exhibit at Winona’s Minnesota Marine Art Museum.”
More About Shutterbug
Minnesota-born David Tewes was a soldier in the U.S. Army during World War II with a penchant for photography. After Tewes’ death in 1991, his family discovered a large collection of his Kodachrome photographic slides taken between 1944 and 1955. These never-before-seen images offer a unique view of post-war America at work and at play. Photographs reproduced from these slides include Tewes’ deployment to Alaska during the war, river and lake scenes around his hometown of Hutchinson, Minneapolis, and St. Paul, and snapshots from his trips to the coasts of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Mexico, New York, and more.
