I photographed the opening of “Worth Its Weight: Gold from the Ground Up” at the Museum of American Finance. I arrived early to shoot stills of the exhibit, and as guests arrived, I photographed the activity of the event.

According to the Museum, “Worth Its Weight” captivates visitors with the many spectacular and unexpected ways gold has influenced our lives – from science and technology to entertainment and pop culture to finance and economics. The exhibit features hundreds of unique and rare objects from more than 40 public and private collections including the Smithsonian Institution, the Tiffany & Co. Archives and the Degussa Collection, as well as the work of jewelry designer Marla Aaron and world renowned jewelry artist Sidney Mobell, who transforms everyday items into dazzling gold and jeweled artworks.
