“The Portland PechaKucha is the only one of its kind that offers ‘spotlight sponsorships.’ Sponsors are recognized when their signage, illuminated by flashlight, is carried back and forth across the dark stage. Inspired by that analog celebration and PechaKucha’s general spirit of innovation, I have made a portrait of each presenter lit only by a single flashlight.” -GR

“Inspired by Pecha Kucha’s theme of ‘20’, each of my images is actually 20 images — one for each slide — stacked on top of one another. I fretted the end result may turn out be a pile of unidentifiable mess, but was pleasantly surprised in the end to find each piece became almost painterly, coming together to tell the individual story of each presenter.” -CS
