Portland artist Jarré Lyman put forward an incredible show as our June Guest Presenter. Lyman did two sets of performance art that held PPF members spellbound. Using still photography and video he documented aspects of his life as an artist in a truly unique and inspiring way.
In the first, he documented the changing of the length of his hair by staging highly detailed photos from periods in history when males normally wore their hair in a particular style. We saw Jarré as a Civil War soldier, as a 1960s surfer, a current day street protester, and many more. The second was a technical tour de force photo-a-day project in which the younger Jarré read a sonnet that gave advice to his older self.
We hope to have him back next year just to see what he does next!
