Ace photojournalist Pete Hohn spent much of his long career at the Star Tribune photographing hockey, baseball and basketball games, but like all staff cameramen, he did every job that came his way which is how he happened to be at the Metropolitan Sports Center in Bloomington on a night in November 1971 when Elvis Presley took the stage and a blizzard of flashbulbs lit up the scene.
Hohn's work will be celebrated in a show at Carbon Chroma Gallery in the Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St., N.E. Gala party 6 p.m. - 9 p.m., January 18, free. The show will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Jan. 17, 18, 24 and 25.
Hohn took so many photos of 5-time American League batting champ Rod Carew that he could have been the guy's agent. Here he caught Carew at bat in a May 1976 Minnesota Twin's game:
