Damon C. Fuller, Jr. photographs, 1967-1970
Photographs from the estate of Damon C. Fuller, Jr. The collection includes a selection of unmounted black & white images (contact sheets and 8 x 10" prints) apparently taken by Fuller, perhaps as assignments for classes taught by Aaron Siskind and/or Arthur Siegel. Subject matter includes people (senior citizens, i.e. "Old Age"?), 1968 Democratic Convention and 1969 Moratorium, nudes, and one possible image of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The collection also includes the student independent work: Photographs Institute of Design Portfolio 6 (number 49 0f 100) issued in 1969. The portfolio includes 13 mounted, signed, black & white prints by ID students and faculty members Jerry Aronson, Constance Brenner, Thomas Brown, Barry Burlison, Linda S. Connor, Joe Crumley, Antonio Fernandez, Joseph Jackna, James Newberry, Stephen Ryan, Arthur Siegel, Aaron Siskind, and Karin Vanek. The prints measure ca. 4 x 6" and are mounted on 11 x 14" boards. The portfolio is contained in a custom-made two-part Plexiglas case which serves both as a box to store the prints and as a frame (with hanger attached) to display the images.
