Kerri Jamison


One of the nice things about traveling from Chicago to Minneapolis is the long drive is broken up nicely by the famous Wisconsin Dells. I’ve been known to make a pit stop turn into a 4 hour photographic excursion. The surreal and strangeness of this place begs for pictures. Luckily for us photographer Kerri Jamison has been making that trek as well, though hers would hardly be a pit stop. Kerri has spent the last two years making trips and photographs of the Dells. Her pictures capture not the excited tourism one would expect, but quiet subsumed moments inbetween the busy seasons.
A exhibition of her work opens July 17 at the Minnesota Center for Photography.

    Thanks for highlighting Kerri Jamison’s excellent work. I have driven past the Dells a couple of times during cross country wanders (usually in winter) and never knew exactly what was going on, she captures the off-kilter beauty of the place perfectly.

    Fantastic link to Kerri’s work. I usually avoid that crazy place, but I now have a project in mind. Imagine that place bathed in moonlight and covered in snow.
