A&E FYI: Nate Lindstrom photos to be showcased at Beaner’s Central

Emerging photographer Nate Lindstrom will be offering the first appearance of his photographic collection “It Was Really Something in its Day” at Beaner’s Central Oct. 2.

Nate Lindstrom is an arising digital photographer with a sympathetic eye for things of the past left untouched and unused in the ever-changing modern world.

He has been photographing what he calls “fond memories” from his childhood, although many of the things captured were out of use even at this time, making them more memorable to earlier generations.

“Some of these things, like the old brass candlestick telephones, were considered luxuries when my grandparents and great grandparents were growing up on the farm,” Lindstrom said in a press release announcing the show. “The world is so caught up with their Wi-Fi hotspots and 80 gigs of portable music storage that they don’t realize where these ideas started. I’m trying to spark some interest.”

Lindstrom’s 12-photo collection is entirely printed in the only two colors available to the earliest of photographers: black and white.

“It Was Really Something In Its Day” can be viewed daily at Beaner’s Central Coffee House Oct. 2nd through Nov. 12th.

Beaner’s is located at 324 N. Central Ave. in Duluth and business hours are 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
