It’s my pleasure to announce to you a new photographic collaborative that I’ve helped form entitled PhotoForce. Our mission is to be a creative force for hire as well as a creative force for doing good with our photography. The current roster of photographers includes Daniel Root, Brian Lee, Steven Scardina, Stuart Mullenberg, and myself; Lincoln Barbour.
Over the past year, the five of us set out to document and illustrate the cycle of food at the Oregon Food Bank, a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger in Oregon. Each of us took a different approach photographically and literally went from farm to table to highlight every aspect of where the food comes from and where it goes. The body of work that we’ve created will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank to be used in their marketing and promotional materials.
25 selected photographs from the project will be on display as large-format prints for one night only on January 21, 2010 at Venue Pearl. Details below:
When: Thursday, January 21, 2010 from 5:00-10:00pm
Where: Venue Pearl – 323 NW 13th Avenue Portland, OR 97209
I would like to personally invite you to come to this special exhibition. Please feel free to bring a guest and pass on this email. The event is free and open to the public. Music and refreshments will be provided. You’re encouraged to bring a canned good donation for the Oregon Food Bank.
I’d also like to thank our sponsors, Pro Photo Supply, Venue Pearl, House Spirits, Pushdot Studio, and Rogue Brewery. Collectively, they are providing prints, rental, refreshments, and a space for the event. Without them, we would not have been able to put on such a wonderful event.
