Finally captured the Minnesota State Fair in a way that tapped into my nostalgia of it. Granted, it took 60 year old lenses with some moxie and patience. I wanted a look that felt like digging through home video films in a box in the attic.
It’s funny, the fair has a way of growing on you over the years because of all those you’ve shared it with and been with over time. It’s a timeless place that hardly changes, like home should feel.
Every time I go, I’m reminded of my grandpa who took me there as a kid, old flames who were supposed to be forever or just friends who’ve gone or remained; and of course my new wife who ceaselessly enjoys it like I do. It’s memory condensed, a late Summer romance where the sun always sets in the Midway.
It’s a moment, at this time, that is like no where else in the world. Just here in Minnesota.
