Another article in Germany featuring my work and our story. Featured in Stern.de, a popular German media organization.
This month I was contacted by an editor and interviewed by ZEITjUNG Magazine. They said they had stumbled across my work and wanted to feature it in their online publication.

PORTLAND, OR (Blue Sky) - Join us for a special afternoon with artists O'Hara Shipe and Nolan Streitberger as they speak about their photo series currently on view in Blue Sky's 2017 Drawers exhibition. Both artists have created bodies of work that disrupt stereotypes of women and girls and tell important stories that are often eclipsed by dominant cultural narratives. In Shipe's series, Beyond the Game: Defining the Female Athlete, she provides visual space for her subjects to unabashedly present themselves to the world as they want to be seen, while Streitberger's photo essay following his 6-year-old daughter's daily summer activities highlights her delightfully unselfconscious strength, independence, defiance, and playfulness.
Hosted by Blue Sky/Oregon Center for the Photographic Arts:

Blue Sky Gallery
On view May 23–July 14, 2017
This past September, Blue Sky turned their Library wall into a Drawers exhibition space that rotates every other month. Their second show from the 2017 Drawers exhibition features photographs by four artists whose work spotlights girls, unidealized and dignified. Taking pleasure in ordinary life, and pride in cultural identity, these girls are as strong as they are playful. Each one conveys her unique capacity for mature self-possession.
