In the Mist: Multimedia Presentation
May 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Hood River Library will host photographer Russell J Young for a multimedia presentation about his collaborative photography and poetry book called In the Mist on May 10 at 6:30 pm.
In the Mist is a collaboration between Young and seven Oregon-based poets and combines over forty poems with fifty-four photographs capturing Oregon’s mist-clad landscapes, urban moments and enchanting coastline. Young’s images, along with their poetic responses, celebrate the ethereal wonder of the mist and the voice that emerges from silence. In The Mist binds together poetry and photography in a relationship in which one is not excluded from the other, but rather both are met and bound and emerge as a new wholeness.

Photographer and fine art printer Russell J. Young is motivated by his love of nature and the performing arts. His photographs have been exhibited in the Abbaye de Neumunster (Luxembourg), Maryhill Museum of Art (Goldendale, WA), Mingei International Museum of Art (San Diego, CA), Romanian Embassy (Sweden), and Sibiu International Theatre Festival (Romania). Books include In the Mist: Giving Voice to Silence, a collaboration with seven esteemed Oregon poets exploring the ethereal wonder of stillness, and Teatro de los Muertos, a collaboration with Milagro artistic director Olga Sanchez celebrating seven years of Day of the Dead theater. Russell’s commercial photography is represented by agencies in London, Stockholm, and Seattle. www.russelljyoung.com
