By The Skanner News

The Oregon Historical Society Research Library will exhibit its collection of photographs from The Skanner News Aug. 24 through Dec. 18. The exhibit will feature the work of photographer Julie Keefe, whose work has appeared in The Skanner’s print edition and on its website for more than 20 years.

This exhibit draws on Oregon Historical Society Research Library'sSkanner Photographs Collection, which owners Bernie Foster and Bobbie Dore Foster donated to OHS in 2013. The collection contains 17 cubic feet of photographic prints from The Skanner’s 40-year history, including dramatic images of community events, political campaigns, sports, culture -- and thousands of notable personalities.
The exhibit will provide a document of Portland and its Black community during a critical 45-year period of growth and change. The entire collection is available to the public for research at theOHS Research Library, accessible here.

Keefe was named Creative Laureate of Portland in 2012. Her work has been published in a variety of public and private settings, including collaborations with the Equity Atlas of the Coalition for a Livable Future, Portland State University's School of Social Work, the Portland Art Museum, The Oregon Community Foundation, and Caldera.

A complete finding aid to the collection is available here.

TheSkannerPhotographs Collection was catalogued for OHS with the assistance of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
