MSP (Cedar-Riverside Plaza)

I cannot think of a single place that has held my attention longer than the Cedar-Riverside Plaza in Minneapolis. Ralph Rapson’s brutalist “New Town in Town” located near the West Bank of the U of M has caught my gaze since I first stepped out of the light rail in 2005. Click above for full […]

MSP (Winter Walk, D + G)

The course consisted of making projects that used photography (or any media […]

Street Food and Minneapolis

I was headed into work this morning when I noticed yet another giant white truck selling food items in downtown Minneapolis. In the past, I’ve made the decision to judge every city I travel to/live in by the quality of its street food. For example, New York introduced me to the beauty of spicy squid […]

Hidden and Heterotopias

Sometimes I wonder why I even both to write, think, or photograph anything. I do a great deal of rehashing ideas and thinking out loud via my site/blog. However, somehow, it ends up being worth it. For example, it is almost humorous the way that things can come back around; full circle. This time 3 […]
