Workhorse, Camp 18, Oregon

Pete Janes

Portland, United States

Artist's Description

Camp 18, Oregon, nestled in the Coast Range between Portland and Seaside, Oregon, is a fascinating glimpse into the days when people thought that the endless, rolling ridges of old-growth forest in the region would go on forever, that no amount of human buzzing, dragging, peeling and sawing could make any kind of a dent. They were wrong. But for better or for worse, the efforts made here created the world in which I live, and for that I am grateful.

The machines that were devised (many custom-made or “jury-rigged”) to process the monstrously huge Douglas firs were also rather monstrous.
