Photographer Craig Blacklock is giving a free public presentation on Oct 29 as part of "Making a Great Lake Superior" conference in Duluth.

His presentation/exhibit will be at the DECC in Duluth 6:30-8:00 - I assume he will be talking about photography and the environment of the North Shore.

Here is some info on the conference: [url= http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/superior2007/agenda/] Making a Great Lake Superior[/url]
