Jim Leisy in China.


I was so very saddened this week to learn of the passing of dear friend and photographer, Jim Leisy.  Jim was an anchor in the Portland photo community, someone who made things happen.

Jim and I spent a week in China together in November, at the Lishui Photo Festival.  We had a great time exploring, photographing, and showing our own work at the festival.  Above is a portrait I took of him at a lake outside of Lishui.

Full of good humor and kindness, he will be sorely missed.
