Gallery to feature classic photos by former Star Tribune photographer


He shot photos of everything from Minnesota sports legends to everyday occurrences to entertainment icons, and now the works of former Star Tribune photojournalist Pete Hohn will be featured in a Minneapolis gallery starting this week, the Star Tribune said.

Hohn reportedly spent much of his time taking photos of baseball, basketball and hockey games, but also shot events like Elvis Presley's 1971 concert at the Met Center in Bloomington. The focus of the shot isn't so much on Presley as it is the sea of flash bulbs going off when the rock 'n' roll icon took stage.

Hohn's work will be shown at the Carbon Chroma Gallery in the Northrup King Building on 1500 Jackson St., NE, starting Jan. 17. The exhibit is free, and will also be open from noon to 5 p.m. on Jan. 17, 18, 24 and 25.

A gala party with an appearance by Hohn is also planned for Jan. 18, 6-9 p.m.

The Carbon Chroma Gallery says the black-and-white photo exhibit captures events from the baby boomer era of the 1950s-80s.

The Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association said Hohn shot photos for the Rochester Post-Bulletin for two years before moving on to the Star Tribune for another 28 years.

Because of the Presley photo, the show has caught the attention of such blogs as Elvis Day by Day and the Facebook page Memories of Elvis Presley Family and Friends.

Hohn is also known for his photos of Twins great Rod Carew.

The Star Tribune said, "(Hohn) took so many photos of 5-time American League batting champ Rod Carew that he could have been the guy's agent."
