The Patina Collection by Wendi Schneider
The Patina Collection is an assemblage of gilded prints in the 'States of Grace' series paired with antique frames - the synthesis of 40 years of collecting turn-of-the-twentieth-century art and objects and creating images inspired by my spiritual connection to graceful organic forms. The serpentine shapes are echoed in the subjects I photograph and the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts period frames that complement these works.

King Community Project by Alan Wieder
During the 2020 Covid summer there were daily political protests in Portland, Oregon. Many turned violent. I attended a rather mellow rally at the sports field next to the King Elementary School in north Portland - it was a Saturday afternoon in July. There were a group of five men on a hill above the field who were sitting in an area where there are four picnic tables, and from afar I thought that they might agree to be photographed.
