CURSED

The historic gold-mining town of Bodie is said to be cursed. It went from boom-town to ghost-town in just 50 years. Its afflictions ranged from mercury exposure, dangerous work conditions, severe winters, violence, gambling, gun-fighting, stage robbing, to the disastrous fire which destroyed 90 percent of the town. The malediction is also said to follow home visitors who "borrow" objects from Bodie. These reversed and highly saturated images reveal the supernatural powers still at play on these grounds.
