Spring means lambing season in Minnesota
Spring means lambing season in Minnesota: Dave Ellison releases a 3-day-old lamb after a bottle feed in the barn at Northcroft Farm near Pelican Rapids on April 5, 2013. By that morning, Ellison and his wife, Joan, background, had welcomed about three dozen new lambs. By the end of April, they had between 60 and 70. "That's partly because we have so many triplets," Joan Ellison said.

As part of the celebration of MPR's 50th anniversary, we gathered 50 images from the work of our news and music services' award-winning photographers and regional freelancers to show what makes Minnesota special — especially the people who live here.

The exhibit, titled "Faces of Minnesota," made stops in Rochester, Bemidji, Moorhead and Minneapolis, and parts of the exhibit traveled to Duluth and Mankato as well.

If you didn't get a chance to see it on the road, we hope you'll enjoy it here.

The exhibit was funded in part by the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund of the Legacy Amendment.
