Meet the Photographer of Bodie: Good Times & Bad
Saturday, March 17, 10 - 11 a.m.
The Friends of the Monterey Public Library - Author’s Series
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.
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, he has created his own "Inside-Out technique". His haunting, evocative photos are featured in the newly published Bodie: Good Times & Bad, which the late Kevin Starr, former State Librarian of California, called "magnificent".
