I have shared the most visually compelling human-centered images that tell a complete story about regenerative farming. Minnesota is one of USA’s top producing agricultural states, therefore, is on the forefront of sustaining our local food systems and helping mitigate climate change’s negative impacts. My images highlight farmers using regenerative farming practices that work with nature rather than against it. These farmers focus on conservation, topsoil regeneration, biodiversity, and capturing carbon for a healthier, more sustainable Minnesota.

Uche Iroegbu is a Twin Cities–based photographer, artist, and dad of three lovely daughters. Photography is his way to connect with people, his society, his environment, and to himself.


I have created photographs of peoples of the African diaspora using and enjoying local Minnesota outdoor spaces and places and activities such as fishing, biking, hiking, and winter sports during our autumn and winter months. These communities, historically, haven’t been well represented in Minnesota in positive lights even though we are a major part of the economic and cultural growth of the state. As a creative representative of the people I believe that it’s my responsibility, when given a chance, to highlight and showcase the people.
