My friend Sara turns 30 years young in a few days, so this week’s TBT is some silly photos of her band the angry orts (now called Fault Lines), taken in 2006. These are my early attempts at band portraits, so please forgive me. Happy birthday Sara, and you’re welcome!
I recently had the pleasure of documenting some Japanese students while they were in Portland as part of a BeGlobal exchange program. I photographed them as they were introduced to their host families, during an ESL class at PSU, and finally on a hot summer day picking berries on Sauvie Island as seen here. The main takeaway from this assignment is that teenagers are teenagers, no matter where they come from.
While on a trip to visit family in Southern California, I took some family portraits for my sis-in-law’s coworkers. I tried to arrange these two pairs of sisters like it was a band portrait but they had a hard time keeping a straight face. We got it eventually, but I like the outtake.
