"CHET"
in his Mountaindale Cabin
Vintage rural Washington County, Oregon
Part of the Northwest folk portfolio


My archival giclee print offers an exquisite range of tonality and brilliancy faithfully capturing this historical subject. Makes a strong impression. Suitable for immediate safe viewing (the print is clear sleeved on foam core board) and ready for framing.



Seated in his one room Mountaindale Cabin is old-timerChet, a reclusive hermit, here shown lighting his pipe. I photographed him in February of 1974 as part of the documentary project. Although shy, Chet was most accommodating when I asked him if he would let me photograph him. I asked Chet to act as if I wasn't there. The resulting portraits were both naturalistic and telling of a more simplified and harsher rural life. Looking at Chet by the window (his only source of lighting) I was reminded of Roy Stryker's WPA (Farm Security Administration) efforts from the 1930s depression. In these rural hinter lands, some people lived in an absence of electricity with wood as the only source of heat. These images are from a collection that reveal the impact poverty has upon the lives of those who share its face

Image dimensions are @11.3x17 inches
Heavyweight 270 gsm Satin paper
Signed/Dated on lower white border

The photograph was taken as part of a photo essay on aspects of poverty in Washington County, Oregon. This portrait was included in a documentary film, "Portraits of Poverty," I produced in 1974.
