FARGO STREET

100 Black and White Images
by W. Scott Olsen

FROM THE INTRODUCTION:

Fargo, North Dakota is the muse for W. Scott Olsen's black and white meditation on the richness of human experience in all its raw and unfiltered beauty…In the end, what emerges is a black-and-white celebration of life in all its colors—a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, the enduring beauty of nature, and the interconnectedness of all things. The world viewed through Scott's lens is at times formidable, at times inviting, at times solemn, at times lyrical, but always, it is a world bursting with meaning.  Scott's work takes us on a journey that reminds us of the inherent beauty that resides within us all and the dignity and worth of every human being.

OTHER PRAISE:

W. Scott Olsen's images are so powerful; they made me feel like I had traveled to that area of the country and witnessed these moments myself. The balance of both people and landscapes is wonderful, and I found myself drawn to the images of winter and could feel the desolation and freezing temperatures. Thank you, Scott, for sharing these images with us.

Scott Olsen's exquisite book of black-of-white photographs reveals the richness of Fargo, ND, beyond the Coen Brother's quirky movie. Thanks to Olsen's keen artistic eye and perspective as a long-time resident, we experience the breadth of Fargo's vibrant life--its people, beautiful winter landscapes, and city scenes. We see work, music, play, protest, love, and many other acts of living, all carefully composed and printed. My favorites are a diver in full flight, magnificent whirling clouds above a strip of houses, and lights magically illuminating what might otherwise be a mundane parking lot. No doubt readers will have their own.

David E. Little
Former Executive Director of the International Center of Photography

In gritty black and white, Scott captures the famed 'Fargo' in a wide palette, from its grungy urban humanity to its tranquil rural beauty and everything in between. He shows us faces, places, and the quiet details many of us walk past, unaware of the little stories they have to tell, and he presents them together to paint a broad picture of life in a corner of the world that is so obviously close to his heart.
