The Pacific NorthWest 40

In recognition of Portland Photo Month, April 2019, this group exhibit celebrates the photographic talent of the Pacific Northwest.
For 7 years the exhibit celebrated the Portland Photographic Community combining great work from the Portland community. This year, we have opened the Exhibit to the entire Pacific NorthWest for the PNW 40. The exhibit combines work from emerging photographers with that of established and known photographers from the Region. One image each from 40 photographers have been chosen, images which stand out and uniquely exhibit the vision and creativity of the photographer

Congratulations to the Photographers accepted into the PNW 40 Exhibit.
