Idlehands ...

Kim Manchester is a photographer who has been interested in the stories of space, place and objects - the histories, memories and narratives that can be excavated and communicated through the photograph.  She teaches photography at Portland Community College, Sylvania and works and lives in Southeast Portland, Oregon with her husband, son and dog at the foot of an extinct volcano.


She does not like to refer to herself in the third person ... but will make an exception in this case.
