Anyone wanting to respectfully explore their stories &/or the stories around them using Photography, artist Koa A. Tom welcomes you to share their studio. The Studios operates on historical land of Kalapuya peoples past & present and honors with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. We continue that tradition in recycling & restoring oldies but goldies, be it a digital file or a plastic bag ! Light Rider Studios participates in the evolution of Photography by illuminating knowledge; supporting experimentation; & being a community space. Thank you !
