After the Gold Rush features new daguerreotypes by Bay Area photographer Binh Danh, taken during a recent residency in Nevada City, CA. The result is an exquisite exploration of a small town and its many incarnation. Danh's silvery images extend the pioneering work of early photographers, while reflecting the spirit of and developments in the California Gold Rush town.
Over the last six years Bay Area photographer Binh Danh has been traveling the American West with a mobile darkroom he calls Louis, after Daguerre, originator of the daguerreotype, the artist’s chosen media. This exhibition features recent experiments in Nevada City, CA, where the gallery runs a residency program. The work is disarming for how it shifts what we think we see. Don’t miss it.
