Urban circus photoshoot! My friend Lara Evensen, who’s a madly talented photographer, made all this fantastic art on a cloudy Portland day in a nearby park with me and our friend Kathleen. We balanced precariously on a floating dock and stumbled on a construction site with that crazy rebar ladder (which was roughly 30’ up) and generally had a blast.
I’m particularly in love with these shots because I’m framed against Portland itself, which has given me so many circus opportunities and such an incredible community to be a part of. I’m coming up on my third anniversary of calling this town home and I’m so grateful for what I’ve found here.

The foot of Stone Mountain
Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.
- Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)
[human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]
