Portland, Home Again

I returned to Portland in September 2014 after being away more than a quarter of a century. A lot has changed, and suddenly the gritty bike bar town I remember when I first came here in 1983 is a destination city that has become a beacon for new urbanism, hipsters, and beer brewing, among other identities. It is also the whitest major urban city in the United States, which is obvious everywhere you go here. I am documenting a lot of places and spaces in my re-found home. I will update this gallery from time to time. You can also see my photos of Portland’s industrial landscapes in the gallery Portland, A¬†Working Town. (Last updated March 2016.)
