Meet the Photographer of Bodie: Good Times & Bad by Nicholas Clapp, Photography by Will Furman.

In the 1870s, the mining town of Bodie was both a «fearfully and wonderfully bad place» and a town of hard-working pioneers. Mark Twain once remarked that in Bodie virtue versus vice made for exciting times. Will Furman and Nicholas Clapp's new book examines Bodie's dual nature.

Furman develped what he describes as Inside-Out, a single image technique that utilizes both the reflectivity and translucency of windows to create a single image with multiple planes. The result conjures a Bodie that was, haunting and evocative. Join us for a presentation on one of the West's most captivating ghost towns.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments served. Presentation begins at 6 p.m.

About the speaker: During Will Furman's career as a commercial photographer, he produced scores of marketing and educational films for Apple, Black & Decker, and many other companies. Now a fine art photographer, his evocative photos are featured in the newly published Bodie: Good Times & Bad, which the late Kevin Starr, former State Librarian of California, called «magnificent.»
