California’s official state ghost-town is Bodie, a former gold mining town between Yosemite National Park and the Nevada border. Founded during the California gold rush and inhabited until 1942 it is preserved just as it was when it was abandoned. At the inhospitable altitude of over 8,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Bodie had a population of over 10,000 at its peak in about 1880. Eugene photographer Bill Haynes has captured the essence of this haunting remnant of Western history. The collection artistically displays the remaining buildings and their contents just as they existed when the last residents left.
In addition to “Bodie”, Haynes will show another smaller series entitled “Water” consisting of abstract images of water. Colorful and provocative these images challenge the imagination in a pleasant and soothing way.
