Description

Chuck Davis: The Wheel showcases 38 photographic images, many taken using antique equipment (a 1904 Seroco 4×5 dry plate camera) and printing techniques: tintypes, large format film, and wet-plate photography which uses hand-coated emulsions on glass.

Davis describes his exhibition, “The Wheel is the name of a project in progress, honoring and observing lands once described as Indian Territory. Cultural narratives inform this project, situated in places of forced relocation—and especially areas near the terminus of the Trail of Tears.” The name itself—The Wheel—refers to the lottery wheel that contained the slips of paper that told newly-arrived Europeans where their new parcels of land were located.
