"The Story of the Nagatani/Ryoichi Excavations"

Colin Edgington (L)

Friday, March 11 - 9:00AM to 9:45AM
Summerlin A

Photographs have often been treated as pins in the trajectory of progressive time, evidence to the belief that we are slowly trudging along a single one way road. But what if along this road the photograph records an anachronism? This presentation will recount the story of two men, Nagatani the Photographer and Ryoichi the archaeologist, as they uncover and record excavation sites around the world. We will travel with them on their journey, through photographs and text, watching as time folds and unfolds before them and objective reality begins to crack at its foundation.
