My documentary portrait of Angel's Jewels dpicts the owner pushing a broom outside his shop. This image was taken as part of a photo project included for viewing at a national conference held in Portland, Oregon, entitled Wages, Welfare Or What? The show highlighted some of the issues under discussion as it related to full employment, health care and poverty. At the time of the conference, the Humphrey Hawkins Bill, sponsored in part by former Vice president, Hubert Humphrey, was under intense discussion.
The subject shown in this documentary photograph figured in the larger conversation. Angel's Jewels and all other stores located on this downtown Portland block were scheduled for demolition to make way for a parking lot. Tragically, elderly citizens who lived in hotels on the block were forced to move without anywhere to go... and sadly one of the great movie houses from the silent era, The Blue Mouse, was torn down.
My documentary image was made utilizing a Nikon F film camera. The detail is enhanced by my use of an ultra sharp 24mm Nikkor wide angle lens. The exposure was made on Kodak TRI-X film. The original negatives have been kept in dark storage and are in pristine condition.
