Photolucida presents Then. Now. Here. a slideshow celebration of Oregon – its people, its landscape, its unique character and special history. The premise is simple – show us your photographs of Oregon and its people, THEN or NOW. Historic images, modern images, funny images, poignant images – we want to see your vision of this beautiful state we call home. In April 2014, as a component of Portland Photo Month, Photolucida directors will curate a slideshow from these images. The slideshow will be presented at a gala event at the Oregon Historical Society on April 16th.
Do you love Oregon? Go out and photograph it! We can't wait to see your images.
