Newspace Center for Photography says
Throughout April, Portland Photo Month, Newspace Center for Photography will present a solo exhibition of 70 portraits by North Portland photographer, Jake Shivery. The exhibition will be on view from April 3 to April 26.

The series, 'Contact,' which includes photos CNN said “show affection for Portland area [and its] residents,” presents Shivery’s 8x10 contact prints captured on his large format Deardorff camera. The exhibition will coincide with the release of Shivery's first monograph, 'Contact,' which has been produced by One Twelve Publishing, a Portland-based publisher. The book, a 160-page, limited-edition monograph containing approximately 100 images and an artist essay, will be available for sale at Newspace throughout the month.

Jake Shivery lives and works in the St. Johns district of Portland, Oregon, where he is a local photographic icon. His work is collected in the Portland Art Museum, where he has also lectured.
