Favorites from a year of the Green Line Checklist – Editorial Photography MN
Over the course of 2016, I have joined a crew from Heavy Table to slowly eat at every independent restaurant on University Ave (and following the Green Line of the light rail) from St Paul through Dinkytown as part of the Green Line Checklist. We embarked on a similar quest last year to document the food along Central Avenue in Northeast Minneapolis, talking about the food, spaces, and people that we ran across.
I eat along with the other 3 in our standard group and a rotating panoply of guests, and I also supply photo documentation of the food and people we interact with along the way to compliment the outstanding illustrations of WACSO and the writing of the other two. As a project, it has taken over my date nights and free week nights for most of this year so far. We still have another few months until we are finished.
Here are some of my favorite images so far – about 2/3 of the way finished with the project.
