Photography by William Willis & Virginia Lucas Featured in December
The Lost City Museum is excited to present the photography of William Willis & Virginia Lucas during the month of December in the Museum’s rotating gallery.
Virginia Lucas is originally from Lebanon, Tennessee, she moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2015 in order to pursue her PhD in archaeology. She has always had an interest in photography, but never put much time into it. Since moving to Las Vegas, Ms. Lucas has had several opportunities to travel throughout the western United States and documenting the natural world as well as the urban landscape.
As an anthropologist and photographer, William Willis’ work focuses on the emotive content of the built and natural environment. From the fun and quirky personalities of animals to the powerful emotional impact of architecture and landscapes, he uses photography to help question the position that we are separate from the world around us.
