These are some of the most beautiful prints I’ve seen. Meticulous – down to the wonderful no-glare layer of glass (plexi?) and ever so carefully framed – minimal and highly refined thin line frame. It’s like a Swiss watch timepiece. I have to say the presentation of these “vernacular architectures” plays a huge role for me anyway in the reception of the photographs. The contrast of the shack presented in this way elevates them them along with the atmosphere constructed with-in each photo.
Terrific stuff – don’t miss a chance to ogle them – right next to the BlueSky gallery – a concentration of up and coming and established arts in the Pearl District – Portland.
