Back in July, the Minneapolis Photo Center had an exhibit on called “100 Years of Cameras and Photography.” It was a lot of fun to see all the vintage cameras and equipment. There was also a talk by Tom Arndt, a native Minnesotan who has been documenting life in these parts since the 1970s. His photo books include “Home: Tom Arndt’s Minnesota” and “Men in America.” It was fascinating to hear him talk about all kinds of photo topics, including Vivian Maier and why he still shoots black and white film.
It was a beautiful evening and Wendell and I got to the MPLS Photo Center early so we wandered around the area a little bit. The railroad tracks are close by and there are lots of warehouses and construction-related businesses in the neighborhood.
All the photos from this roll are on Flickr in the Roll 21 album if you’d like to take a peek.
