This series of cemetery photographs was shot in Minneapolis' Fort Snelling Cemetery on my last day in Minneapolis. The cemetery is near the airport. Before catching my flight home I made sure I would have enough time to pop into the graveyard and take a few pictures. I never visited Fort Snelling back when I lived in the Twin Cities, something I now regret. I absolutely loved the symmetry and homogeneity of the grave markers, and the abandoned feel of that place near dusk. I got really lucky with the weather; a storm was rising as I got into the cemetery, and I had just enough time to get some nice shots before the rain got too heavy.
The first image in this series -- showing the stormy twilight sky and uniform rows of grey grave markers broken only by a single bouquet of flowers -- was featured in the literary magazine Midwestern Gothic.
