Oops I Did It Again

Leafing through the drawers of the Harold Washington Picture Collection, I decided to let the images guide the direction of the project.  Seeking out photos with similar visual qualities (gestures/relationships/objects etc.) a theme of Safety! and Accident! quickly emerged.

  1. Thank you for scanning these Michael. It is good to be able to look at them again. Some strong image discoveries and juxtapositions here. The most striking pairing for me is the odd safety lesson image of the woman holding a doll over a stove that is catching fire, alongside the disturbing photo of the firefighter who is holding a real child that may no longer be alive.
