Luddites

by Kiko Matsing


Portland, OR (2015)

Proof positive of Portland’s genteel white hipster culture. Oblation Paper & Press is a high-end stationary store selling over-priced tongue-in-cheek artisanal greeting cards and wedding invitations.

Effete preoccupations, check. Ironic nostalgia, check. Luddite technology, check.

There is something decadent in the over-refinement of this neo high WASP culture.
