“Broken Duluth” Photo Exhibit Displays Destruction of 2012 Flood

Photos taken by Kip Praslowicz are on display at the Red Herring Lounge downtown

DULUTH, Minn. – A local photographer is sharing his view from the flood that affected Duluth back in 2012.

Photos taken by Kip Praslowicz are now on display at the Red Herring Lounge. It’s part of an exhibit called Broken Duluth.

On the day of the flood, Praslowicz left work early after hearing about all the damage around the city.

He uses a large film camera, which creates very detailed, high resolution photos.

The exhibit shows the chaos caused by the floods, but also highlights the beauty behind the damage.

Praslowicz says when others see the photos, it bring back a lot of memories for those who experienced the flooding first hand.

“Last night I was hanging them up, there was a guy telling me his story of each picture what he witnessed during the flood and various other events and what he remembers of it,” said Praslowicz.

The photos will be hung up at the Red Herring Lounge throughout the month of March.
