WORKS > It Happened in Sun Valley...

For the "Urban Lifecycles" exhibition, I culled footage found in films all shot in or around Sun Valley, ID from the 1930's to the 1950's. Certain themes emerged in almost all the footage: elaborate travel, romantic desire, skiing and skating. These aspects of Sun Valley, meant often to advertise the lodge, also encapsulate a certain time in American history and the development of the entertainment industry.
