It's hard to believe that I just saw this photo for the first time a few months ago. Since then, it comes to mind at least once a day. There's something so strange and surreal about the point of view. It feels like a still from a film. I'm surprised that it's not more popular among Minnesotans.
After the success of having prints on the wall at Kit and Ace, I decided to start selling prints on my website. It's something I've wanted to do for a while, but never felt comfortable with until I was making them myself. I'm now able to print at my studio with archival pigment ink on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta paper. Signed open editions are available at 8.5" x 11", 11" x 17" and 13" x 19".
I'm grateful to have raised the funds needed, so I'm keeping the sale price active until the end of the year and will be adding a few more prints to the collection.
Not surprisingly, I had a lot to learn after being approached for this opportunity. I couldn't have done it without the help of the local Kit and Ace team and the crew at Mitrebox, who helped me make some important production decisions.
This is the biggest I've ever printed my work (30" x 20") and it's very exciting to see them in such a cool retail space. There's a third print hanging in the store that's not pictured, so you'll have to visit the store to see that one. They'll be up through October.
If you want to know more about Kit and Ace, Minnesota Monthly did a nice write-up about the new store.
Made it down to Austin for a couple of days to attend SXSW for my first time. I mostly went to visit a friend from college who was playing a showcase. It was really great and I hope to spend more time down there next year. I decided to only bring film cameras with me and carried around a Yashica T3 most of the time. It was a lot of fun to slow down and shoot that way.
Here's my favorite pair that I've shared on Tumblr already.
And here's another pair that I like. I took these just a few steps from each other on South Congress. They're part of a project I'm working on with a friend of mine. "Nature Finds a Way" is the working title.
