11/02/2018 - Discussion: Bodie Good Times & Bad
Will Furman, the fine art photographer behind Nicholas Clapp's Bodie: Good Times & Bad (Sunbelt Publications, 2017), will discuss the history of Bodie State Historic Park and the "Inside-Out Reflections" photography technique he developed while working on the book.

Bodie Historic District, the best-preserved ghost town from the California Gold Rush, is located seven miles south of Bridgeport, California, at an elevation of 8,379 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Now in a state of arrested decay, Bodie is an excellent example of an American West boomtown and the accompanying lifestyle that developed in the western mining towns. As part of the California Gold Rush, many Chinese came to live and work in Bodie during its early years. More than 100 historic buildings remain in the district to convey what life in Bodie was like between its founding in 1859 and its end in 1942, when mining was suspended and the last Bodie residents left the town.
