chad germann and subjects collect for an interview

Inspired by the people whose experiences and stories create the unique vibrancy of Hennepin Avenue, the It’s the People Virtual Roundtable series features conversations with portrait photographers, the subjects of the portraits and experts tackling the tough issues the portraits address. Now in its second year, the 2020 It’s the People portraits feature examine deeply complex topics, including violence prevention, transgender equity, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls and youth identity. We hope you’ll join us for this monthly series as we learn and support artists and community during these challenging times.
