Nocturnia Book

Nocturnia Book is a project of visual research, archive and archeology of the photographic image. At a time in history when the body is seen as the form of content, Nocturnia remains anonymous by the author’s choice. Being in obscurity allows one to resist in a security zone where the alter ego is not necessarily a lie.

The Newsletter is the result of a stream of consciousness which various individual and collective narrative, culturally determined, are explored. These nocturnal projects, all coming from visual culture, communicate with each other through a fundamental component: relativism.

Lora Webb Nichols Archive

This photography collection is housed at the American Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. Lora Webb Nichols (1883-1962) created and collected approximately 24,000 negatives over the course of her lifetime in the mining town of Encampment, Wyoming. The images chronicle the domestic, social, and economic aspects of the sparsely populated frontier of south-central Wyoming throughout the early 20th century.
