What’s new (and old) in the neighborhoods?
Here’s my story that ran in The Bridge about the 32 x 4 exhibit at the Central Library in downtown Minneapolis.
It starts: A photo exhibit running through the end of the month reveals the familiar details, past and present, of neighborhood life in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The images range from still life — graffiti-covered telephones, a bridge over the reflecting water of the Mississippi — to close, personal portraits of the people who bring life to those settings.
The images were shot with both digital and film cameras, in color and black-and-white; and historical photos, postcards and other resources from the library’s neighborhood-related archives complement the works.
