After using a large format 4X5 camera and color film for over 30 years, David Husom switched to a high resolution digital camera in 2010. However, his basic working methods and interests have not changed. He is still committed to documenting small towns and the rural Midwest. In particular he is drawn to the vernacular architecture of communities. Husom is currently working on a project documenting Wisconsin Highway 35 from the Illinois border to Lake Superior.
David Husom has exhibited throughout the US and in Japan, including the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles; Anderson Center, Red Wing Minn.; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Barrett Art Center, Poughkeepsie N.Y. and New Vision Gallery, Marshfield, Wis. One-person exhibits include ElectroLift Gallery, Minneapolis; E. J. Bellocq Gallery, Ruston, La.; Baldwin Gallery, Murfreesboro Tennessee and Southern Light Gallery in Amarillo, Tex. His photographs are in the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, George Eastman House, Weisman Art Museum, Minnesota History Center, 3M and the Federal Reserve Bank. He has been published in Aperture magazine and has done visiting artist programs at a number of colleges including the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay, the Minneapolis College of Art & Design, the Milwaukee College of Art & Design, and Wright State University in Ohio.
He teaches new media and documentary photography at the University of Minnesota and lives in rural Wisconsin, overlooking the Mississippi River.
