Tucson photographer Gary Auerbach will have a solo exhibition covering 30 years of work at the Rancho Linda Vista Gallery in Oracle. Opening reception is 1 – 5pm, Sunday, Sept. 7. Exhibit runs Sept. 1 – 30.

Subjects include some of the last photographs taken on the sound stage and sets at Old Tucson before many of the original buildings at the historic movie studio burned in a massive fire in 1995. 

The images showcase a variety of printing methods from 8x10 and 11x14 large format negatives. Auerbach says they include platinum/palladium, Cibachrome, cyanotype, gum bichromate and even stereoscopic platinum among others.
