Sprache: Englisch / Shot over four years, The New Forty-Niners documents the new wave of gold prospectors who have rushed to California 160 years after the original Gold Rush of 1849. The tactile and earthy photographs show the gamblers, the adventurers, the desperate, and the young-at-heart in their camps and on claims spread across this magnificently wild landscape. The elemental rugged life of these passionate and obsessive individuals is juxtaposed with gold souvenir shops, bars, and motels celebrating the mining history of The Golden State. - Texts are by Pulitzer Prize-nominated reporter Kevin Fagan (San Francisco Chronicle) and British photo critic Lucy Davies (The Telegraph).
