A culmination of four years photographing throughout Oregon, Washington, and Northern California, Sawdust Mountain (Aperture, June 2009) focuses on the tenuous relationship between industries reliant upon natural resources and the communities they support. Eirik Johnson, a Seattle native, describes his photographs as “a melancholy love letter of sorts, my own personal ramblings.” Through this poetic approach, Sawdust Mountain records a region affected by historic economic complexities and, by extension, one aspect of our fraught relationship with the environment in the twenty-first century.The artist reception/booksigning at the G. Gibson Gallery is this Thursday,
