100 Snapshots was an exhibition that provided a glimpse into the daily lives of Anchorage residents, beginning with the arrival of railroad workers and their families in 1915 to the boom of oil in the 1980s. Each image was a window into a private story of a life being lived in Alaska’s largest city taken through the intimate lens of amateur photographers.

The concept of this exhibition design was to lead the visitor on a journey as they wandered the path of the rails. The photographs were mounted along the tops of the rails, providing an intimate experience with each photo. A light table held several slides that could be viewed through loops, and images were projected onto the south facing wall. Large graphics of retro cameras adorned the walls that included information about the cameras and the film used.
