This October, for the second year in a row, John Tylczak has generously offered to loan us 10 images from his broader collection, Views from the Northwoods: 1983-1995, for a month-long photography exhibition in the Forest Club Room!
Tylczak’s black-and-white prints powerfully capture the scenes and faces of the Washington timber industry in the mid-1980s and early 1990s, from fallers and rigging crews, to loaders and transport workers, log scalers and mill workers. He ended up taking more than 1,500 large-format images during that time, and the 10 he’s sharing this year all come from the Olympic Peninsula.
His photographs will be on display throughout October from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Anderson 207, and you can meet Tylczak in person if you’re able to make it to the Salmon BBQ on Wednesday, October 7, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.!
