Our archivist, Carey Hedlund, has been settling into the Penland archives this winter, finding gems like this photograph taken by Dan Bailey during the fall of 1984. The photograph was later used for a Penland catalog, and Dan left a note: “It was taken at night and each window was a separate flash exposure. Probably took a couple of hours to do.”
Each week, Carey sends us a photograph from the archive to post on the Penland Instagram account as part of #tbt or “throwback Thursday” (one of those new-fangled Internet hashtag phenomena you may already know about). Scroll through our Instagram feed here to see more of Carey’s selections.
“Somehow, window-dancing struck me as a lovely way to ring in the new year,” Carey notes about Dan’s picture.
