Portland, Oregon by Jorge Guadalupe Lizárraga

9 Jun

From any number of perspectives, Portland is a photogenic city. Located on the Willamette River, surrounded by its West Hills and extinct volcanoes (like Mt. Tabor and Rocky Butte), with majestic Mt. Hood and Mt. St. Helens on the horizon, and with an impressive collection of historic buildings, bridges, and new architecture the city is quite picturesque, indeed.

My eye, however, tends to follow the everyday life of the city, from the street life of the city to its quickly disappearing industrial districts. As a human geographer who studies and teaches about urban form, cultural landscapes, and the bult environment, my photos reflect my aesthetic as well as scholarly fascination with cities.

The images included here are from a series of “sidewalk” images of Portlanders in their town.

    Love that last shot. Portland also wins my vote for being the most bicycle friendly city in the US.
