On July 15, 1983 more than 90 photographers spread out across Oregon to capture a visual record of our state. The event was recorded in an exhibit for Oregon Historical Society and a book called One Average Day. This week more than 100 photographers and videographers including some of the original photographers joined together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Project Dayshoot by repeating their feat.
Photographers from the states largest newspapers took part including: The Register Guard, the Bend Bulletin and the Oregonian. Check out the links below to find incredible photographs of Oregon's landscape and people.
Inspired by Project Dayshoot and its book "One Average Day," Brian Burk, a multimedia student at the University of Oregon, worked with Michael Lloyd of the Oregonian and others to create Project Dayshoot30.
The Skanner News' multimedia editor Helen Silvis joined the event visiting Rockwood MAX station, the Urban League Senior Center, the Rockwood Boys and Girls Club; Peninsula Park and North Killingsworth Street.
