Exhibition Statement

Layered Landscapes is an exploration of Portland, Oregon dictated by born and bred residents. Steph, Hank, Andy, and Dan shared their memories of places located around the city and guided me on personalized walking tours.  While I walked each individual’s route, I documented the multisensory experience of moving through each place, collecting the sights, sounds and textures. The work in this exhibition refers to the visual language of cartography, while blending the physical landscape with the experiences and memories that transform spaces into places.
