Remembrance of Things Past

So near, and so far: K.B. Dixon turns his lens on downtown Portland, before the pandemic and the plywood.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND TEXT BY K.B. DIXON


There has been a lot of depressing talk lately about what our city has become this past year. It’s hard to argue. The images here have been gathered for nostalgics.  They are, à la Proust, a small remembrance of things past—images of Portland before the pandemic, the protests, and the plywood.
