Boxes of Glass

Here are a few quick shots of the Asa Kinney collection in its current state. The first step will be to sort the plates by size and type. Next, I'll break the groups into sub categories based upon subject. The physical weight of this much glass is incredible. What a relief photographers must have felt when switching to flexible film.

There is also descriptive metadata that was hand written on the original negative sleeves. It looks as if Kinney had reused many sleeves. Some information is crossed out and then new subject has been added. After the images are sorted and numbered I will capture each sleeve to make sure the original information can be attributed to the original object.
