Dr. Stephen Davis: The Truckee Measdows' Open Lands Project; A Visual Survey of our Past
Between 1985 and 1995, Steve Davis documented the open lands remaining in the Truckee Meadows. These included the vast meadow in the southeast quadrant of the Valley including Double Diamond Ranch. Davis also photographed agricultural remnants scattered throughout the Valley, as well as parks, ruins and abandoned places. Inevitably, his photographs include many building projects in the Truckee Meadows. He will discuss his Childhood Memory and Sense of Place project, which collected childhood memories about place from local residents.
