ART: Brian Bulemore “NOUN” Photography
Bend photographer Brian Bulemore’s “NOUN” retrospective is the featured exhibit throughout June at Thump Coffee. Bulemore’s selections of monochrome and color images center on “people, places, and things” and are taken from shoots in various Northwest and international locations involving street scenes, portraiture and object studies.
“My professional experience as a mental health therapist necessarily puts me in a place of having faith and focus upon unconscious drives and powerful knowledge that is ‘below the surface’ of our normal awareness,” Bulemore explains. “I feel that much of my artistic motivation and photographic eye comes from these intuitive places.”
Originally from Michigan, Bulemore relocated to Bend in 2006 “for more sunshine and a new job,” he says. Bulemore is currently the Clinical Director for the Northstar Center, a substance abuse and mental health treatment program for young adults.
He also operates Abacus Photography studio and is expanding his presence in galleries in Bend, Portland and Corvallis. Visit abacusphoto.com.
