Finding a twerk-life balance

After navigating their way through the winding hallways of the A-Mill Artist Lofts on Saturday, around 60 women stuffed their coats in cubbies and found their spots on the dance studio floor, making small talk before their twerk class began.

Looking for love, a sense of self

Nostalgia and longing are emotions meant to be felt wholly and expressed authentically. Stephanie Sunberg and James Molitor prefer to capture them in photo. The two Minneapolis-based artists find nostalgia and longing in others and in themselves — like two lovers or creators of an intimate self-portrait.

Players on each team guard three bowling pins without getting hit themselves by stray balls.
