Capturing the Gorge

Note: Due to a computer glitch, the original blog post for this show (along with all of the orginal comments) has been lost. What follows is a new description.

This is a conversation with the curators of the Portland Art Museum’s exhibition Wild Beauty: Photographs of the Columbia River Gorge, 1867-1957.

It spanned personal and photographic histories, and brought to life images that — because of dams, or industrialization, or the decimation of native tribes — only exist now as prints. As such there’s a sense of celebration as well as melancholy in the hour, but we present it now with a new note of sadness: Terry Toedtemeier, the Portland Art Museum’s photography curator, died on December 10th, 2008.
