This collection of images around Minneapolis and St. Paul represents my passion as an architectural photographer. Much of this imagery was created purely for the love of getting out there and working with the camera and scenes of our Twin Cities. Some scenes are iconic, classic angles which I attempted to put my own spin on, and others include unique angles you may not have seen before such as the view of Target field at dusk from The Ford Center. More than ever, the cities are changing, especially with the current construction boom going on in the downtowns.
And thank you to Claire DeBerg for her wonderful writing, completing the story for each of the images.
