Making photographs for "Public Living Rooms" in Portland is very different, at least so far, than those in San Juan. I've been shooting around downtown with focus at the Central Library. Unlike San Juan, most of the people I meet are homeless. Their schedules revolve around various church meals and many are very much alone. Many other people have their communities and spend time together near the library or in the park blocks nearby. Sometimes the conversations revolve around Bob playing guitar and singing Bob Dylan tunes in front of the library. Other groups meet around the corner -- sometimes the encounters are warm, but other times not so much.
