First Friday Reception: : June 1st, 6-9pm
Portland photographer Joanne Fielder has combined extensive travel experience with advanced study in photographic processes to produce works that express her response to life’s subtle moments. Her work is prompted by quiet, out-of-the-way scenes, which convey glimpses of the sublime, pleasant surprises, and the unexpected layers of meaning in everyday life.
The First Year is her expression of the period following the death of her mother, a period of profound loss, change and uncertainty. Fielder captured the images in Norway during mid-summer 2011, while accompanied by her childhood friend and a lifetime of memories. View more of her work at www.joannefielderphotography.com.
