The Pacific Northwest 40

My image titled ‘Internal Conflict’ was selected to participate in the PNW 40 exhibition at LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. This image is part of an ongoing concept of double exposing and cross processing 35mm slide film. I created this image after the passing of my sweet pet skunk Lydia as I was trying to work through my feelings pertaining to the last 11 years we spent together; growing together. While I was unable to view the show in person due to COVID restrictions, it was a treat to have a virtual walk through presented by the gallery through social media. 

“This group exhibit celebrates the Photographic Talent of the Pacific Northwest. We feature work that exhibits the unique vision and creativity of the individual photographer. One image each from 40 photographers was chosen to be featured in the exhibit.

For 7 years the exhibit celebrated the Portland Photographic Community combining great work from up and coming photographers with that of established photographers from the Portland community. Beginning last year, we opened the Exhibit to the entire Pacific Northwest for the PNW 40.” - Lightbox Photographic Gallery
