About the Event
The year is 2120. The PNW is a ghostland of decrepit houses, rusted automobiles and feral dogs. An apocolyptic plague reached Oregon in the spring of 2020, swept across the U.S. and destroyed 95% of the population. Quarentineed off by Mexcio & Canada with guard towers & really huge walls, communication & transportation collapsed during year two. Small bands of Oregonian survivors now travel in wild packs via razor scooters, skateboards, roller skates & shopping carts. To honor the anniversay of the end of civilization as we once knew it, a celebration of fashion & photography has been planned at an auto graveyard in the neutral territory of Eugene, OR. Let your freak flag fly, barter for ripped Levis, goggles, shampoo & gasoline. First 20 models and first 20 photographers will receive a free 60 second colored smoke grenade from SmokeEffect.com.
***This slam is made possible by our friends at Focal Point Photography, thanks Nate for supporting creative community!
