Silver on Mirror (For Ron)
pays tribute to the central role that silver has played in photography since the early 1800s. In creating this image of silver leaf on mirror, Bing Wright was influenced by both the camera obscura, which used silver-coated mirrors, and the daguerreotype, which made use of silver-based compounds. The resulting composition has a sense of kinetic dematerialization, capturing the fragility and ephemeral character of silver leaf. Ironically, Silver on Mirror (For Ron)
was shot with a digital camera, the device largely responsible for silver's obsolescence in photography.
