The graffiti are a recurrent presence in your photos. And with reason...some of them are authentic murales! Very good ones.

Which is the profile of these artists? Street kids, or something more polished?

It is a combination - some are Mexican immigrants, some are professional artists or recent art school graduates, some are done by community organizations as a summer activity for kids. Most of the murals are done with permission of the building owners. There are a lot of murals in some parts of the city and demand for them is enough that good painters usually pretty busy.

At some point I think I am going to do a thread of all my mural and graffiti photos.

Minneapolis in winter is the last place I'd want to be but these pics are absolutely amazing! I love the murals too.

Looks so cold. I hadn't realised how multicultural Minneapolis was either.

Small world! You got a very clear shot of one of my coworkers on her way to work.

Nice pictures.

I hope I didn't freak her out. I always wonder what people think when I am photographing them. Walking around taking pictures of people isn't really part of Minnesota culture so I feel slightly uncomforable doing it but the end results are so interesting that I don't stop. I don't think very many people are doing this here, I like to think that I am creating a sort of photographic documentation of life in our era that people in the future can use to know what things were like now, and so that people elsewhere in the world can know how Minneapolis is.
