Local photographer Brian Bulemore returns to Thump Coffee throughout August with a collection of works entitled “Noun . . . Revisted.” The exhibit is a return to Bulemore’s long-running “Noun Project,” which he describes as “a series of images of people, places, and things in the context of urban landscapes, street portraiture, and object studies.” Thump Coffee will be open late for First Friday Art Walk on August 5.
“My vision as a fine-art photographer involves wandering of streets to seek out unusual objects and people, often in strange and quirky settings or situations,” explains Bulemore. “I have been amazed by the sheer number of weird and fascinating sights that I’ve stumbled across in these unscripted travels.”
Continues Bulemore, “Life for me is at its best when I am meeting people, laughing out loud, camera in hand…filled with the exhilaration of exploration, discovery, and the preservation of moments in time. Finding beauty in unexpected places, mirrors the open-minded approach I try to maintain in life each day.”
Bulemore lives and works in Bend as a photographer and mental health therapist. For the past five years, he has worked as a clinical director for a young adult mental health treatment program and is currently opening a private therapy practice. His photography has been featured in nearly 20 solo and group exhibitions and displays throughout the Northwest.
