Alain LeTourneau: Swan Island Industrial Park

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday December 07
Beam Projects
5232 N Williams Ave.
 
Between Portland and St. Johns, Swan Island occupies a kind of no-man’s land, an industrial zone largely segregated from the general public. In 15 photographs in stark black-and-white, Alain LeTourneau has captured the area’s eerily impersonal avenues of capitalist production. Nighttime photos of the empty parking lots and vast warehouses are especially creepy. It’s a portrait of the factory as haunted house. Through Dec. 8 by appointment only; call 231-6548.
