I started this project when I was forced to get a hotel on the coast of Oregon unexpectedly after a major highway was rained out. I grew up on the amazing coast of Oregon, but have been living in NYC the rest of my life. Coincidentally (or not?!) when I woke up early the next morning, we had found our hotel was in the town of our first childhood home! I ran out and shot all I could and the Oregon Project ensued.
