parting shots

Time to head back to the midwest. This project I've begun in Portland will have to be put on the back burner until I can return.

Here are two more photographs I made. These guys are both incredibly down on their luck, have been for a long time and unfortunately don't really see a way out of the downward spiral at this point. They, like all the others I've met while working on these photos, could not have been nicer to me or more open with me. I really appreciated having the opportunity to get to know them, even if it was for such a brief moment in time.
