BE THE WEIRD - Portland, OR, USA
I was truly honored to photograph Portland's weirdest, who assembled for an historic photoshoot capturing the true spirit of the city, amid the threat of violent protests in the Rose City.
Weird Portland United is an organization that celebrates and supports weirdness in Portland, Oregon and beyond. They are now proud to offer the finished piece as a limited edition fine art print raising funds for a grant program that will support Portlanders looking to turn their own weird ideas into a reality. Pre-order today from the link below, and you may be able to have it signed by the stars on Nov 7th at the Weird Portland Gala! #BeTheWeird 📸🦙🎸
Weird Portland United's motto is: "Keeping seriously weird, and taking weird seriously."
That's the kind of philosophy I can truly get behind.
Here's the link to buy the print:
Thanks to Weird Portland United, all of the participants, and the people working hard behind the scenes: Brian, Nick, Mark, Liza, Strawberry Pickle, and of course my better half and photo partner Tanya, for this wonderfully weird event!
