LITTLE FALLS (AP) -- A local photographer has created a poster reflecting Minnesota pride from each of the state's 87 counties.
As part of a national Stateart project, Mike Jensen has organized 140 images into a color poster called "Looking for Minnesota."
Jensen, 50, a full-time editorial assistant and part-time photographer for the St. Cloud Times, spent three weeks traveling the state and gathered nearly 500 pictures of Minnesota emblazoned on such items as signs, buildings and vehicles.
Jensen said the 18- by 24-inch poster is aimed at promoting state pride and tourism. They will sell for $15.
Jensen prefers not to talk about how much the project cost, but he said he didn't do it for the money.
"I did it because it was there to do," he said.
