Window In Time

Hi, my name is Jeff McFadden. In 1970 I moved to VC. The people in these photos became my friends. I knew and loved them all, and I loved VC.

The images below are part of a group of photographs taken by J.K. McFadden over a two year period between 1978-1980 in Virginia City and surrounding Madison County Montana. The entire collection constitutes photographs of approximately 150 separate individuals and 4000+ negatives. McFadden's goal was to not just get their likenesses but to try and capture who these people really were. Sometimes that would mean several days photographing just one subject. The work from McFadden's viewpoint consists of two seperate groups. Those living in and around Virginia City before 1970 and those who came after in the early 70's, a rather large and unique influx of young people. When most of these pictures were taken 1978-1979. These two groups had become a community a single thing.....VC.

There is a list of the names at the bottom of this page of the individuals photographed for this project. Please click on any of the small images below to see a larger version of the image. Please keep checking back as new
names and images will be added.
