What We Carried

Fragments from the Cradle of Civilization

What We Carried: Fragments from the Cradle of Civilization is about leaving one’s homeland. Portland Photographer/Writer Jim Lommasson is currently photographing and interviewing Iraqi refugees and immigrants who have fled to the U.S. since 1990. This project dovetails with Lommasson’s visual and oral history of returning American soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars called Exit Wounds. Lommasson feels that there is another side of the story that needs to be told, about those who have left their homeland and are now resettling around the world. Lommasson is photographing those few important personal items that have survived the long journey from Iraq to the U.S. The journey may take months, sometime even years, and includes refugee camps, piles of documents and possibly a few bribes. After photographing the objects, Lommasson asks the participants to write about the significance of their objects on the finished photographs.

Also featuring work by Iraqi Artists Farooq Hassan and Samir Khurshid

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Painted Interpretations of Modern Icons
by Chris Haberman + Scott Chase


ON VIEW THOUGH JANUARY 29th


“Through out history people are remembered for their actions and recognized by their portraits. When I started this series I tried to divide figures past and present into categories (Good/Bad/Ugly) but found many of the icons I had chosen fit more than one of these groups. This evolved into me finding figures whose actions fit all three categories. With the subjects selected Chris and I painted portraits of each icon though our different and unique artistic filters. Our goal is to invoke the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in each figure though these portraits. ”
