Explorations in the Minneapolis Mill District

The Gutherie Theater design has always fascinated me, with its’ metallic blue skin reflects whatever is nearby, and the cantilevered “porch” that seems to defy the laws of gravity. When we were shooting weddings, the Gutherie and the Mill District were always our favorite locations for engagement sessions, because they both offered radically different environments for capturing young couples.

While shooting Friday I was struck by how this new structure would change the human scale that is what makes the Mill District feel good. I couldn’t help but notice how the area will be drastically changed in scale with the completion of the new Vikings’ stadium, a metallic and glass monster that will loom over the Mill District like a mother ship.

Today’s photo was shot while I was capturing some initial views of the erector set like bones that will hold the stadium together. I was looking for shots that included the stadium frame in contrast with the Gutherie, however, the sun wrapping the Theater in its’ beams was to much to resist.
