Back in February, the editor / publisher of Northwest Review, which has published some of my photographs over the past several issues, approached me about doing a book of my photos. He was interested in doing a book that would show Portland, Oregon as it is today, that I’ve been showing on my Instagram posts and Sanslartigue. I started pulling photos from my files and covering the dining room table.
Black and White photos, covering the past five years or so. What I’ve seen in our neighborhood, downtown, and elsewhere in the city where I’ve lived for 32 years, and have had connections to for 65 years. Not the Portland of Fox News, but the Portland that I’ve seen. Mostly digital, some film. A lot from my phone, but a lot from various cameras. Many that I’ve posted to Instagram, some from Sanslartigue, and some that I haven’t posted before.
I’ll share more details in the coming weeks!
