This October, we are very pleased that local photographer John Tylczak will be hosting his fourth photography exhibition in the Forest Club Room!
John grew up in Shelton, Wash., where four generations of his family have lived since 1885 (his grandfather, in fact, was the executor of Agnes Anderson’s estate). The black-and-white portraits he will be showcasing come from his broader collection, Views from the Northwoods: 1983-1995, which captures the 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. John’s broader collection includes more than 1,500 photographs, and the 10 images he’s sharing this year will focus on shots from Weyerhaeuser properties.
The exhibition will officially kick off on October 4—coinciding with the annual Salmon BBQ (4 to 6 p.m. in the Anderson Hall courtyard)—and run through the end of the month. It will be open to the public during normal weekday business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
We heartily encourage you to come by and enjoy John’s powerful photographs!
