Portland’s MadGirl

This final portrait of Portland artist and designer Meredith Alex, AKA “MadGirl” is the last for the year-long Inspire Portland project.  It’s been a really fun ride.  I’ve met dozens of incredible, inspiring people, only a few of whom made it into Inspire Portland.  Many more deserve to be.   I never intended this to be a definitive roundup of Portland’s best and brightest, but a glimpse of the deep pool of talent here.
It’s up to you to find your own inspiration.
Meredith was a great subject—she shimmied into the coolest dress made from strips of photo paper and walked barefoot out on a jetty in Portland’s harbor.  It was actually pretty chilly when we took the photo and quite late in the evening, but she was a true trooper.  Take a look at some of the outtakes and the behind-the-scenes photos from the shooot.  And thanks for reading!
