View Point Portland: From Dusk ‘til Dawn

Artist Statement

As a photojournalist, one of my favorite things to do is to document everyday images and happenings here in our home town that are beautiful or meaningful, however often overlooked on our day to day journeys.

This series began simply as my documentation of my move into downtown Portland, but has blossomed into so much more. I hope you find that these images speak loudly of arrival and exploration. They show my transition; beginning in the outskirts of the metro area, then growing increasingly warming and familiar as my adventure draws me into the heart of this incomparable city.

I want each image to evoke inspiration; a particular emotion ensuring that any individual piece has the power to stand on it’s own, but also has it’s place in this storytelling series of prints.
