Collection Overview

Title: Abby A. Gorin Photograph Collection, 1965-1978Add to your cart.

ID: Image Archive/Collection 01

Primary Creator: Abbye A. Gorin (b. 1927)

Extent: 2478.0 Items

Arrangement:

20 Hollinger boxes and 1 folder in Manuscript Flat File Case 1

Inventory Compiled in March of 1996 by Abbye A. Gorin, Ph.D. architectural researcher-writer, photographer

The collection is inventoried in alphabetical order by country, date, city or historic site, and political subdivision. Each entry indicates the storage box number and the country and date of each grouping, followed by the total count of negatives and prints in the group. The first number in the column to the left is the item number of the entry (when two or more images are mounted together there is only one entry number). "N" represents the number of negatives in each entry (when possible two or three exposures of each view were made). Identification of the camera used is indicated by "R" for Rolleiflex which produces 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 negatives and "L" for Leica which produces 35mm negatives. "P" represents a print count. A notched negative usually indicates the negative printed. After the identifying numbers, each print is described.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

1965-1985.  The Abbye A. Gorin Collection includes photographs of people, city and country scenes, architecture, archaeological sites and pre-Columbian art in Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru and the Museum of Mankind in England, taken during the years between 1965 and 1985. Gorin used two cameras in shooting the photographs in the collection: a Rolleiflex (purchased in 1954) with a fixed 3.5/75mm lens, and a Leica M-3 (purchased in 1963) with Leica Summicron 50mm, Summicron 35mm, and Elmarit 90mm lenses. She printed with a Bessler 23C enlarger (purchased ca. 1960) with a Beslon 4.5/10mm and Leitz Focotar 4.5/50mm lenses. The majority of film was processed by Gorin herself.

Box 19c: Miscellaneous and Experiments Add to your cart.

In the early days of the Archive Gorin conducted experiments in copying and printing vintage photographs. The following are the results of these experiments.

Southeastern Architectural Archive (SEAA), Tulane School of Architecture, Lantern Slide Collection, October 1980 (N-72/P-14)

This collection of several hundred lantern slides concerning world architecture was the teaching collection for the Tulane School of Architecture. Lantern slides were superseded by 35mm slide technology in the 1930s. Bernard Lemann, Ph.D., professor emeritus of architectural history, recalled using both lantern and 35mm slides in his 1940s classes. For safe keeping the collection has been moved to SEAA and is housed in its original cabinets. The vintage projector is also in SEAA. These lantern slides are 3-1/4" h x 4" w (outside dimensions).

In 1980, before the collection was moved to SEAA, Gorin discovered a group of Latin American lantern slide images. Celia Maddox, then slide librarian at the School of Architecture, made copy negatives of seventy-two samples which she selected for good and bad qualities to test her procedures. She enlarged and cropped some slides to test for quality of definition. Gorin made a few test prints from this group of negatives.

There are two rolls of 36-35mm negatives, and although the inventory is listed in alphabetical order, the negatives are stored in numerical film sequence. Following the description of each entry is the roll and negative numbers. Description of each image is kept close to the slide's label should one wish to retrive a slide; in some cases the description has been expanded. Robert Boulanger, Hachette World Guides, Mexico, Paris: Hachette, 1968, was a reference.
