Persephone in Oregon

Photo Gallery

HOME ******** SERIAL ******** BOOK

Each of the photographs chosen to tell Persephone's story is part of a series of two or three additional pictures that add context or change perspective. These images, in addition to those appearing in the book, are being released in conjunction with the six-part Persephone in Oregon PDF series and can be individually purchased as full-sized (11" x 17") 300 dpi (dots per inch) PDF files, as top quality color prints, and/or as collector quality archical ink photographs.

"Each picture is intended to tell a story; each series of pictures (“pinax”) is also intended to tell a story; all of the pictures together (“pinakes”) tell an entirely different story. It depends on who is viewing the images, when and where, as to what the stories are."

Part I. New Moon Five pinakes totaling 19 photographs showing Persephone entering Oregon, exploring, and making a decision to stay. At least for a while.
