'Gold and Silver' offers a contemporary insight into an exclusive archive of the California Gold Rush kept by the Cana- dian Photography Institute at the National Gallery of Canada (donated by the Archive of Modern Conflicts). Young 19th-century prospectors look at the camera, defying all the conventions of portraiture. Everything in these pictures – their attitudes, their stares, their clothes – deviates from the usual representations attached to daguerreotype photography. These portraits are accompanied by a series of landscapes photographs, also printed on metal; together, they reveal a pioneering iconography of the American landscape that stresses the human use of the land.
