Portland architecture offers an endless amount of photographic inspiration – from the balusters on a Queen Anne cottage, to the portico of City Hall. This year’s Architectural Heritage Center photo contest, co-sponsored by Pro Photo Supply, focuses on the artistry found in our built environment. Photographers of all skill levels are invited to submit their images of architectural details they find imaginative, surprising, or eloquent in and on historic homes or buildings in the Portland area. Capture the “angels in the architecture” you might miss if you were rushing too fast.
Winning entries and seven Honorable Mention photographs will be unveiled at the Central Eastside Arts District First Friday Art Walk on September 5th.
