In the last few years Jeff Jahn has quickly risen to become one of the leading voices in Portland on contemporary art. He is a jack of all trades, acting as the co-founder and a leading critic for the visual arts blog Port as well as a working artist and a curator, in the latter case both with his own organization, Organism, but also in a guest role at other galleries. Jahn has also been involved on a volunteer basis with the Portland Art Museum.
Looking at his photo of Belluschi's Equitable Building here, the look we know is not to be found. After all, the building owns a place in architectural history as the world's first aluminum-clad structure. Jahn says of his picture, "Since the mechanicals of this building are massively important I thought I'd focus on the part of the building that houses and vents those mechanicals. We take things like air conditioning for granted and how many buildings have good looking mechanical housings?"
