IF YOU ARE ON THIS PAGE IT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE I SPOKE TO YOU ON THE STREET, OR CONTACTED YOU FROM SOMEPLACE ON THE WEB, OR WE MET SOME OTHER WAY.

ANY WAY YOU GO ABOUT IT, I FIND YOU INTERESTING.

 

THESE PAST MONTHS I HAVE BEEN SHOOTING PORTRAITS OF PORTLANDERS. THIS PROJECT IS MY TRIBUTE TO PORTLAND, THE GREEN CITY, THE CITY UNIQUE,  THE CITY WITH THE FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE  DON'T FORGET AND THE CITY SET TO INSPIRE AND FIGHT AGAINST A WORLD WE DO NOT WANT. 

I LOVE PORTLAND.

 

AND SO HERE'S HOW IT WORKS...

 

 I GIVE YOU A PIECE OF CARDBOARD

AND A FAT MARKER. I ASK YOU TO ANSWER A QUESTION SOMEBODY ELSE ASKED BEFORE YOU...

 

 

 

 

 ... YOU THEN WRITE YOUR ANSWER ON THE CARDBOARD WITH THE FAT MARKER...

 

 

 

( I'll probably ask you to fill up all the space or think outside the box )

 

I TAKE A PICTURE.

 

 ...AND THEN ASK YOU TO THINK OF A QUESTION TO ASK THE PERSON COMING AFTER YOU...

 

 FAT MARKER AND CARDBOARD AGAIN

AND PICTURE AND WE ARE DONE !

 

 

AS I WRITE I AM NOT SURE YET IF I NEED TO ASK YOU TO SIGN A RELEASE BUT PERHAPS I DO... I WILL KNOW SOONER

OR LATER.

 

BUT IN ANY CASE, THAT'S IT.

 

IT SHOULD BE A FUN SHOW IN ABOUT A YEAR OR SO. LET'S SAY APRIL OR MAY 2017.

 

I HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT.

 

I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME 

TAKE YOUR PICTURE !!
