Will Furman continues the lecture series this Thursday night (October 12th) at the Gold Hill Hotel.
Will is a photographer with a distinct eye for the serenity and magic of nature – and for echoes of the Old West. He has pioneered what he describes as Inside-Out, a single image technique that utilizes both the reflectivity and translucency of windows to create an image with multiple planes. The result conjures a Bodie that was, haunting and evocative. “When we visit historic places,” Will asks as he photographs, “What did it feel like to live back then? That feeling is what he tries to capture in each photograph. It allows the viewer to feel, for a moment, that they had returned to yesteryear.”
After his presentation on Bodie, Furman will talk about his new Inside-Out technique and show examples of it applied in Virginia City and other historic towns in the west.
There is no double exposure. No superimposition of two images, just one press of the camera button. The results draw the viewer into the image in a new way. People who like ghost towns, like this presentation. It’s different. The towns come alive because each person experiences each image differently.
Last month Will Furman gave this presentation at the California State Library in Sacramento. They have asked him to mount a photographic exhibition of Inside-Out images at the library.
