2020 was a crazy year for all of us. CoVid and the murder of George Floyd in the city where I live left most of us exhausted, astounded and grieving in many, many areas of our public and private lives.
While most photographers were in South Minneapolis, I happened upon a small garden of sunflowers in North Minneapolis. I pulled the Jeep over and grabbed my camera gear. As I was photographing, I noticed a small hand-painted sign in the corner of the garden. "George Floyd Memorial Garden" it said and I spent my summer photographing it from bursting in bright yellow petals, to decay.
These images are the result of last summer. I'm still editing. Its taken me a long time to just look at them.
