For his photographs\, Christopher Rauschenberg takes
inspiration from his daily life and extensive travels. A recent journey to
St. Petersburg gave rise to Museum\, a series of photographs
that capture arresting and absurd moments in the still reverence of museum
settings. Rauschenberg creates unexpected juxtapositions of the unaltered e
veryday\, captured glances that illustrate wit and beauty that is often ove
rlooked. His quietly scintillating compositions draw the viewer into an env
ironment that allows for greater investigation and contemplation.
Based in Portland\, Oregon\, Rauschenberg was educated at The Evergree n State College in Olympia\, Washington. Rauschenberg has been exceptionall y active in the Northwest arts community. He taught for many years at Mary lhurst College in Lake Oswego\, Oregon.
