by Tod GanglerOn View: The Color of Time: Ballard from Dusk to Dawn
Ballard is in transition once more, but this time is it plunder or progress?

Seattle photographer Tod Gangler, in his way, tells ghost stories. In his spectacular new show at the Nordic Heritage Museum... Gangler uses an arcane photographic method to capture ephemeral human presences in ephemeral locales."
                                                   - The Seattle Times

The Color of Time: From Dusk to Dawn features the newest body of work by photographer Tod Gangler. The enchanting photographs subtley examine Ballard as a neighborhood in transition. Gangler’s photographs are made with a unique process that includes a long exposure time, which not only creates beautiful, intriguing images, but also alludes to the rich history of the art and science of photography. The effect of these long exposures is a sense in the photographs that time is collapsed, segmented out, and emphasized.

Exhibtion support is provided by The Maurer Family Foundation.
