Because the late fees on those things are enormous!
The Woodson recently received a fabulous collection of negatives and contact sheets from 1968 to 1972, over 1200 images from the sublime to the ridiculous. I am deeply grateful to the donor and have plans to thoroughly enjoy this material. Miraculously, the sleeves of negatives are numbered, as are the contact sheets, and the numbers actually match. The images don’t seem to be in chronological order, though, at least not entirely, so that will be fun to figure out.
Bonus: Hi, guys!
