Parting Shots examines nationally renowned 20th-century photographer Minor White, focusing on some of his earliest work when he was in Portland between 1938-1942 to photograph the city, from its economically depressed downtown to its opulent mansions. White’s captivating images document a city on the verge of change during the World War II era and serve as one of the few visual records of some of the city’s most significant architecture prior to its eventual demolition. For the first time, at the Architectural Heritage Center, White’s photographs are presented alongside architectural artifacts rescued from many of the commercial and residential buildings that appear in his images and that are drawn from the Bosco-Milligan Foundation/Architectural Heritage Center’s permanent collection. White’s work prompts us to think about how we should document and preserve historic buildings today, especially those at risk of demolition, and the power of the photograph in depicting our architectural heritage.
