ANDREW ESKIND/ENCOUNTERS WITH A VERY LARGE PIC COLL

How long does it take to look at a million pictures? Creative & archival issues explored using a San Francisco Street photographer's unique negative collection.

Details
Joseph Selle photographed pedestrians in downtown San Francisco almost daily from the 1950s-1970s. A million negatives on long rolls of film survive and present a rich source of material for documentary research as well as unexplored imagery suitable for appropriation in new creative projects. Book artists, media artists collaborate with archivists in exploring this previously opaque collection using digital techniques.
