This presentation chronicles the ongoing ventures in working with the more-than one million street vendor photographs in the Joseph Selle collection, taken in San Francisco from the 1930s until the 1970s. Now housed at the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, NY, the Selle collection is perhaps the only archival artifact of such vast size so densely similar and unvaried a time-lapse record of decades of urban life condensed in one continuous scan. While bringing a cross-section of the images back to the city of their origin, the session explores creative projects with the collection and connected themes of intimate surveillance.
