Photographer Mark Hirsch has
given to us so many stories about
the Tri-States with his camera over
the years. First as a photo-journalist
with the Dubuque Telegraph Herald
he was able to present images of
daily life in a loal newpaper.
Today, Mark continues to be
a photo-journalist, but also an artist.
He brings us the images, the lines,
angles, shadows and little things
that help us to see more than just
a photograph. Mark’s talents are
on display with “That Tree,” a
photo-essay about a 200-year old
Burr Oak Tree in a Grant County
cornfield that’s received national
attention and has become an
inspiration to many.
WGLR’s Doug Wagen talked with
Mark about “That Tree,” and the
Pop-up Art Gallery that will be
on Main Street in Platteville this
Saturday as part of Small Business
