Shwood Eyewear and Julian Bialowas are embarking on a new project called This Is Oregon where they encourage people to go out and explore the wilderness and nature of Oregon.

They’ve put together a website to showcase the amazing photos that were taken just 90-minutes outside of Portland. Seriously, if this doesn’t make you fall in love with this state, then I don’t know what will!

Oh, I totally forgot! The Cleaners at Ace Hotel Portland are hosting an interactive photo project based on this notion of exploring Oregon and are inviting you to come by for FREE. It’s going to be THIS THURSDAY, May 3rd, beginning at 7PM. Flyer with info is below.
