As a follow-up to the popular photo book, “99 People of Bend”, the “999 People of Central Oregon” is a long term project by renowned travel photographer Christian Heeb.
When completed, the project will be presented as a photo book showcasing the uniquely diverse, quirky, funny, serious, professional, retired, imaginative culture of Central Oregon.
The subjects photographed for the book are volunteers who are only asked to come, answer a few questions about themselves (the answers to which may be used as a byline for their photograph) and then pose in a manner that portrays who they are at that time in their lives.
This will become a time capsule of sorts that can be reviewed by the generations to come.
A glimpse of life as it once was here in Central Oregon.
