Photo by J. Jason Lazarus
An exhibit at the University of Alaska Museum of the North will feature images, such as this one, created by adjunct instructor Jason Lazarus.
An exhibit featuring photographs by Fairbanks photographer J. Jason Lazarus will be displayed in the Café Gallery at the University of Alaska Museum of the North. The public is invited to an opening for “Stories Fading Fast: Capturing the Remnants of the Alaska Gold Rush” on Friday, Aug. 4, from 5-7 p.m.
The series of photographs by Lazarus, an adjunct instructor of photography at the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Liberal Arts, documents the abandoned mines, dredges and Gold Rush communities of Alaska. Lazarus uses a process that combines brushstrokes and both digital and film technologies to create each one-of-a-kind, handmade print.
The photographs will be on display in the museum’s Café Gallery through November 2017. This presentation is part of a rotating schedule of exhibits in the coming year featuring UAF adjunct artists.
