    Pittock Mansion's Historic Painting Collection

    I recently had the opportunity to photograph the historic painting collection at Pittock Mansion. Here's a selection of the many paintings I captured for reproduction purposes and for preservation, in case of fire or catasrophic event. I was able to set up a little studio in the basement of the 109 year old building that is perched on the hill overlooking the city, and helped gather art works from behind the velvet ropes. It was great to experience an important part of Portland and its history. 

  • Oregon's Cultural Icon - Lillian Pitt

    Oregon's Cultural Icon - Lillian Pitt

    I've been lucky enough to work with Lillian Pitt for over 4 years. First selling and photographing her work at Quintana Galleries, to currently photographing her new work she continues to make. There is a lot to learn from her deep knowledge of the indigenous people of the Columbia River region, not to mention her incredible work ethic, and her warm demeanor.

    Known fondly as "Oregon's Cultural Icon" Lillian Pitt is a descendent of Wasco, Yakama, and Warm Springs people from the Columbia River region of the Pacific Northwest. Lillian's lifetime of works include expressions in clay, bronze, printmaking, jewelry, and glass. The focus of her work draws on over 12,000 years of Native American history and tradition of the Columbia River, and gives a voice to her people through contemporary art.

    I recently had the pleasure of photographing The Toffee Club, an English football pub located in SE Portland on Hawthorne. Inspired by the love of the game, the pub has a menu and decor to match, as well as a separate viewing room for the die hard fans of the sport. Designed and built by Deform NW.

    I recently photographed affordable housing units in the Portland area that were lovingly filled with art. Kimberly Kent Art Brokerage works closely with building owners and project designers to select art work that reflects the client's preferences, compliment the architectural and interior design, and often uses regional and historical imagery to tell the story of the space.
