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.

Date Acquired: 10/01/1986

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.
