“Wish You Were Here”

Date: 2016
Location: East Portland

Collaborators: Christine Toth

Wish You Were Here was a series of postcards that highlighted the diverse businesses along the transit corridor in the Midway District. Eight participating businesses received a unique Wish You Were Here card that serves as a portrait of their place, with a photograph of their shop on the front and text on the back that says something that they would like people to know about them. Each business received a stack of 100 of their unique cards to hand out to the community.
