Silver Harvest: A History of Now
Will Harlan Campbell
October 21 – November 21, 2022
Third Friday Reception October 21, 6-8pm
On view in the Semans Gallery
In conjunction with Click! Photography Festival in October 2022, Will Harlan Campbell created a portrait of Durham, his hometown, through the lens of 19th century photographic processes. The project includes tintype portraits of Durham residents made in Durham Central Park as well as archaeologically minded landscapes of peripheral and liminal spaces in Durham’s less-explored outskirts using the gelatin dry plate process. The dichotomous subject matter represents Durham’s past, present, and future, grounded by the present moment.
Selections from the exhibition are also on display in the Main Street windows of the 21c Museum Hotel through the end of 2022.
