'Minnesota Original' features Rebecca McDonald, CP assistant web editor
Minnesota Original is a weekly Twin Cities Public Television program that highlights creative folks in the local community. Past shows have included musician Jeremy Messersmith, hip-hop/spoken-word performer Dessa, and painter/sculpture artist Gregory Euclide. In a recent episode, the show took a moment to feature photography powerhouse (and City Pages' assistant web editor) Rebecca McDonald.
In the segment, McDonald, who is also known as B Fresh, discusses her work as a photographer and "transmedia producer," meaning she works in a variety of media, including film, writing, and photography. The show follows her as she works on a shoot with poet Shaun Webster, and she takes a moment to reflect on her career, from starting out snapping the B-Girl Be series, to her support of women looking to break into the industry, to her hopes of subject empowerment through her work.
Minnesota Original airs Sundays on TPT. You can check out McDonald's segment below:
