A group of students here at UMM have arranged for several photographers to work with members of the growing Latino community in West Central Minnesota. I was paired up with Paul Cortes, who wished to be photographed with his girlfriend Keni Zenner. They chose the text for their signs, and we worked together to identify a number of different locations around the UMM campus; they particularly wanted to shoot in the greenhouse since that’s where they had their first date.
This is great stuff, and reminds me of some of the high points of the early days of Open Mic Night at UMM. I love how she uses the looping electronics in a way that comes across as very organic and acoustic.
