Randy Moe: 1979
The Independent is pleased to present a group of poignant punk portraits by Randy Moe.
Known for his remarkable drawing skills, Randy Moe, like many of us, is a casual photographer. In the late 70s and early 80s he documented his friends of the burgeoning Punk Rock scene in Portland. This particular exhibition is sourced from a single roll of Polaroid film all shot in 1979. Of the 12 photographs, 4 of the subjects have passed on – from drugs, from AIDS, from illness and from police brutality. Like the subjects, the portraits possess a rare veracity and authentic feel of the times. Reception for the artist - First Thursday, November 3, 6 -9PM. Gallery Hours: Thursday through Saturday 12 – 6PM and by appointment. The Independent is located at 530 NW 12th, Portland, Oregon.
