Upstream brings people together to celebrate and amplify the many ways Minnesotans of all backgrounds love and value our state. Pollen Studio hired Ryan Stopera to curate a cohort of photographers tasked with representing the geographical and cultural diversity of Minnesotans, and how they care for place.




Each photographer brought the Minnesota experience to life in their own individual style, creating a colorful walk through a typically colorful Minnesota year.
