Featured on Twin Cities PBS!

Minneapolis martial arts students were featured this week on Twin Cities PBS as part of Mr. Kern and Lakes Martial Arts being featured on MN Original, Artist Day Jobs. 

As the symbolized in the Korean flag, a yin / yang represents an eternal duality in life. Working and playing, serving an important role of being a well-rounded citizen. Students at Lakes Martial Arts are encouraged to be active citizens in their community, do well in school, balance family and friendships, and try their best. These skills are what they really learn in our program, as well as kicking and punching and having fun!

 Watch the Season 2 premier online here:

Because prints matter more than pixels, here are the first batch of prints from my project, The Unchosen Ones:

The support of this project made possible by the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant. Special thanks to Scott Stebner for helping me understand the agricultural photo world, Matt Steaffens for his patient listening ear, Stuart Klipper and Kathleen Richert for their trusted guidance, Penn Barnes for the additional footage, and my wife and family for their loving support.
