I recently traveled to Duluth, MN for thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family. While it is very cold (10 degrees or lower while we were up there) and snowy (it isn’t snowy in Madison at all right now) it is a very beautiful and inspiring city. I managed to find a couple vendor candidates for my series. Both operations were closed (most likely for the season), but I have not yet seen a food cart in the shape of a boat, and the other artfully seemed to resemble the architecture of an old-fashioned railroad station. Unlike most of the vendors I have photographed, these were more permanent structures.
I also managed to capture this interesting image of a partially sunken, abandoned building near our hotel on the shoreline of the Canal Park area of the city. It was once in business for transport for grain (I believe), but when the mining industries took over, it went out of business and this is all that is left behind. This image is perhaps reminiscent of my Spaces for Lease series, but contains a vernacular aspect of Duluth and its history.
Stay tuned for more art yet to come, the Vendors series’ productivity might be somewhat slowed by the season, but other shoots are scheduled, so keep checking back!No comments
