Golden City

© Mimi Plumb

The pictures in The Golden City were made between 1984 and 2020 when Mimi Plumb used to live on the edges of the city where the rents were cheap. Nearby, on the summit of the hill, were folded layers of radiolarian chert, the fossilized remains of microscopic creatures called radiolaria. A large crevice in the hillside was a reminder of the ever-present threat of an earthquake. Mimi documented the sights and scenes she saw.
