A touching tribute to an oft-overlooked neighborhood institution. Amelia chronicles the sudden closure of the local rite aid in her rapidly-gentrifying portland neighborhood. "I was sad to lose the convenience of living right next door to a store with a little bit of everything. I felt a little silly about feeling so bad; there are so many more important things, big and awful things, I could spend my time worrying about. But when I showed up at the liquidation sale, I realized that I wasn't alone in my feelings." she spent a couple of cold february days taking photos and interviewing her neighbors. The result is a compelling slice of humanity and a snapshot of a changing city.

ABOUT

My name is Amelia Bjesse-Puffin. I created the Smash the Skatriarchy project as an outlet for all my frustrations at the hetero-patriarchy in the skate scene, and also in the world in general.
