Downtown East - Ryan Companies

One of my more interesting corporate clients are the good people at Ryan Companies, a national builder and developer based in the Twin Cities.  While I do their executive portraiture and some event work for them, I've been lucky enough to photograph, at various stage of its early life, the construction of the Downtown East project.  A two-block development in Minneapolis, this mixed-use property will be right next to the new Vikings football stadium and anchor the redevelopment of the east-side of Minneapolis.  Shooting stills and video, I get to pop up whenever a big milestone is about to occur in the building's construction. It's been a really fascinating thing to observe from up close (though safety rules prevent me from getting as close as I would like!).  The development is going up where The Minneapolis Star-Tribune newspaper had its long-time home.  It was incredible how quickly that well-known building just disappeared and the skeletal foundation of something entirely new rose up from it's rubble.
