Surfaces and Strategies, Project Development - Dufur / Fire Damage

Last weekend I revisited the town of Dufur, which was recently affected by large scale wildfires. A local resident, Josh, took us to view some of the damage. Having grown a great affection for this area and it’s people, it was incredibly sad to see the devastation caused. Earlier this year, Josh had taken me to see Charles E. Nelson house, a well known abandoned property on the outskirts of Dufur. This month, we revisited this location, the house having been destroyed in the ‘Substation Fire’ which covered 36,000 acres of land. Placing the photos side by side is incredibly impactful, and reminds me of the importance to revisiting locations and working on this project over an extended time period.
