Oliver Dahl is a published novelist and photographer from Boise, Idaho, known for his objective, tranquil portrayal of liminal places and nostalgic moments. Stories of people and their interactions with the landscape are captured in vivid colors--frequently in scenes void of any people at all.
Oliver's latest photographic project involves an ongoing series of photo books about small towns in the American West. He is also the co-founder and co-curator behind "Carousel Curated," a web 3 initiative powered by Obscura to archive and immortalize found color film slides on the blockchain.
WENDOVER is Oliver Dahl's second published photographic exploration of a small town, a sequel to the series debut, ARCO. The book (and accompanying NFT collection) features a combination of digital and analog photography, paired with stories and history from this town in the Great Salt Lake Desert. From gambling and speed racing to scuba diving and bombing ranges, Wendover is much more than just a sleepy city by the salt flats.
This photo series is the result of 5 different dedicated trips throughout the last year in each of the four seasons. It explores the effects of connection and separation that result from borders and distance, while crafting an honest, raw, and liminal depiction of the gambling town "oasis" of Wendover.
