Vance Gellert’s journey of environmental exploration is revealed as a photographic essay about the unique visual character of the Iron Range. The camera views were made in communities that include Coleraine, Eveleth, Hibbing, and Virginia among others. Gellert’s images reveal the changing technologies of mining, the ever-changing landscape, and the unique personalities that all together represent a complex social and economic interdependency.
