Collection of Surveillance Photographs
[N.p.: n.p., c. late 1960s]. Prints and negatives in very good to near fine condition, mostly stored in a very good folder with a detached front cover and a few loose pages.. Set of unique prints, depicting street scenes in New York, Washington D.C., and Baltimore, similar in aesthetic sensibility to Vito Acconci's Following Piece and his 1972 artists' book Notes on the Development of a Show. Includes 308 prints, most of which are 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 inch individual contact sheet cutouts, as well as 130 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 inch negatives and 4 35 mm negative strips. Shot by the same unidentified photographer, the images capture unsuspecting passersby, with several surreptitious photographs of homosexual men. Prints are housed in a small wooden cigar box and stored in a green folder, with the corresponding negatives enclosed in glassine overlays adhered to the pages. The photographer has written copious notes next to the prints in the folder, as well as dates and brief captions on the prints' versos.
