Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) September 28, 2012

Tom Dunn will debut his most recent collection, “Prague” in Studio 204 of the JAX Building during the Saint Paul Art Crawl, running Oct. 12-14. The JAX Building is located at 253 4th Street East in the Lowertown district of downtown Saint Paul.

Photographs include black and white street scenes, landscapes and the daily life of Prague. Dunn’s first visit to Prague was 20 years ago, when he unknowingly walked into political controversy as Czechoslovakia wrestled with the demise of the state.

“In 1992 there were border checkpoints, armed guards and young people standing on makeshift platforms speaking to small crowds. While the barricades and unrest are certainly gone, the haunting beauty of the city remains. Every morning I would go to the Charles Bridge before sunrise to photograph people going to work and lovers returning home from the clubs, and was awestruck by how romantic and timeless Prague still is today," said Dunn.

Framed photographs and prints will be available for sale, along with stationary cards and mini-prints.

Studios participating in the Saint Paul Art Crawl are open Fri., Oct. 12 6:00-10:00 p.m., Sat., Oct. 13 12:00-8:00 p.m., and Sun., Oct. 14 12:00-5:00 p.m.
