The Benedictine Monastery in Tucson is undergoing a historic renovation coupled with new apartments surrounding it. Construction includes three structures designed to accommodate 255 apartments and a 260-space parking garage. The buildings will surround the 80-year-old monastery, occupied by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration before they relocated to Missouri. Historic repurposing of the monastery building will include either a coffee shop or restaurant. The project is scheduled for completion in 2021.
Brown took this photo of workers using power floats to apply a smooth finish to concrete slabs in July using a Canon 5d Mark IV and Canon 135mm lens. “I was on site to specifically capture the edge-form process. I was hoping to capture the movement and focus of the craft,” he says. “I climbed up a couple of ladders and underneath a few bars to get into that position and waited. I really enjoy the story the photo tells, the action it captures and how the craft workers are framed.”
