A Golden Era – Captured On Silver

Image

I’ve spent the past 6 years photographing the vast expanse of the Hatcher Pass area in the southwest part of the Talkeetna Mountains.  Named after Robert Hatcher, a prospector and miner, the first mining claims were staked here in 1906, and while there are still a few active claims here, there is also an abundance of remaining structures from the quartz and gold rush era to be explored.

It is only fitting that these timeless remnants be captured using the medium of the time – film.   My project encompasses the use of medium and large format black & white films, with the images printed and toned for archival preservation.

Later this summer I’ll be adding some proofs here on my blog, so do come back and visit.
