I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Portland is an amazing nexus for creatives to converge upon. I'm sure anyone who is involved with following amazing photographers on Instagram and VSCO has heard of Kevin Russ. His work is exceptional and I am crossing my fingers that some of his more recent photographs will end up for sale some point soon (there are many inexpensive options on Society6, while more art house quality prints can be found on One Kings Lane. His photographs from deserts to mountains invoke a sense of something primal, and a familiar simplicity that draws you in...maybe its because I was born in a desert.
Have a great weekend. Enjoy.
