I imagined a contest today—for the best snapshot portrayal of the DNA of the American city.
The challenge would read, simply, “the first prize will be awarded to the photograph that the judges believe embraces not where we are going, but where we have been”.
I have no doubt that my entry would be the image above, a recent spontaneous capture in Minneapolis, featuring an eery dusk light on classic brick and an iconic American car.
I am left wondering whether or not I would win, and what the prize would be.
