I came across something earlier this week that I just couldn't NOT share with you guys. Shwood is an Oregon company that makes sustainable wood sunglasses (which are super cool and can be found here). Recently they teamed up with photographer Julian Bialowas to create a photography/interactive series called "This is Oregon".
Now, all you non-Oregonians, don't go away yet. This project, while based in Oregon, is something I think a lot of you will appreciate and love.
It's a series of 10 amazing photos from around Oregon, overlayed with inspiring messages. Some of the photos are definitely more "Oregon" than others, but regardless, they're all AMAZING. And the messages are simple, straight-forward and, many, hit close to home.
I think what I love the MOST, though, is that the first edition prints come mounted between laser-engraved oak dowel rods. Such a beautiful touch. The prints also come in posters you can frame yourself.all the photos here.
I'm definitely trying to find a way to fit one of these beauties into my home!
