We just caught up with our homey Johnny Le, a photographer and filmmaker based in Portland.
(Check out his work here ✈ http://johnny-le.com/)
We’ve been enjoying all the new workshops focusing on handcrafted goods coming out of Portland, so a big thanks to Johnny for sharing shots from the opening of the Tanner Goods store in Portland.
“The crew at Woodland’s Supply Co. shop have branched their American revival leathered goods company Tanner Goods to modestly grow to opening their own flagship store last Friday on West Burnside, steps away from Ace Hotel Portland, Powell’s Books and Everyday Music. In offering an array of hand-crafted and refined craftsmanship products, the flagship will also carry small selections of premium goods.”
He also took some shots from an exhibition of photographers curated by his friend Arthur Lindsey, titled “We’re All Friends Here… …Right?” at Portland’s Powell’s City of Books.
“The group showing is based around friendly ties of mixing renown artists to established photographers within the cultural theme of skateboarding. The show hosts a unique group from the likes of Ray Barbee, Joe Brook, Thomas Campbell, Jon Humphries, Greg Hunt, Caleb Plowman, Molly Quan, Jai Tanju, Jeremy and Claire Weiss, Mark Whitely and Tobin Yelland. On display until July 3rd.”
We’re fans of all the artists, so another big thanks for sharing…
We’re hoping to see more of Johnny out here in Asia. (The last time he was out here, he shot a lil something something for fun while participating at the White Nights project in Seoul):
