History | Arts | NW Life | Oregon Art Beat
Images captured by photographer Minor White in the late 1930s are the only remaining connection to the ornately decorated cast-iron buildings that once lined the streets of Portland.
Landscapes scarred by time and the remnants of transient visitors. Places at the periphery of Portland, filled with existential silence and potential danger. This is the world Roll Hardy paints.
