Last time we flew to/from Portland International Airport I thoroughly enjoyed the aerial photography display of Portland by various photographers. I jotted down the websites of two of the photographers whose work I really admired before we had to run to our plane.
The first one is Bruce Forster at http://www.bruceforsterphotography.com/index.html – plan to spend some time viewing his wonderful images on his website! I love the symmetry in his work.
The second one is Daniel Root. His on-line http://www.danielrootphotography.com/portfolio.html portfolio is very different from his work on display at the airport in that it is totally people oriented. My favorite photo is in the People portfolio and it is the one of the grandfather and child having great fun on the beach. It is a wonderful portrait! I do wish he would add a portfolio of his airport work as well. Ha! I love googling! I found his blog which has some of his work that was at the airport! Yes! See the rest of his blog here!
Other exhibitors I found by googling:
I found Jon Ferrey’s work on his Facebook page. Here’s the photo gallery of his shots. I especially like the plane shadow and the highway interchange photos.
Here is an article about the exhibit on http://www.pmpnonline.com/portlandphotogalleries.htm – From your toolbar click edit, find and paste in: “The Sky’s the Limit” Aviation Photographs at Portland International Airport – That should get you to the blog about it quickly.
The Sky’s the Limit: Photographs of Aviation, Air Travel and Airports
An exhibition of photographs by regional artists with an aviation theme.
Through July, 2010

I’m glad you enjoyed the “Sky’s The Limit” exhibit on Concourse A at PDX. On March 12th we installed “Junk to Funk” in the Concourse D/E lobby. It’s an exhibit of couture fashion made from recycled products (coffee filters, kitty litter bags, vinyl records). It will be up until September, 2010.
In addition to our visual art, PDX features five performance locations with live local musicians playing every day. I hope you’ll have another opportunity to visit us soon!
