Summary

Collection houses the entirety of William Gedney's original photographic work as well as his professional and personal papers, amassed from his student years at Pratt Institute in the 1950s to his early death in 1989. The materials reveal Gedney's intense dedication to his work, and his interest in street photography, portraiture, night photography, creative composition, and the study of human nature. His work took him across the United States several times (with a focus on Chicago, Detroit, South Dakota, Kentucky and California), and to India, England, Ireland, Paris and Amsterdam. Photographic formats in the collection include negatives, contact sheets, work prints, exhibit-quality prints, test prints, personal snapshots, and slides. There are roughly 76,000 unique images represented by the over 2000 contact sheets, with over 19,000 images in the form of work prints and 1466 exhibit-quality large prints. The availability of every format in the photographic process offers deep insights into Gedney's editorial process and artistic vision. Additional perspectives come from his many notebooks and journals; artwork; handmade books and book project materials; correspondence files; memo books; financial, legal and medical records; memorabilia; audiocassettes; and other materials. Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Collection Overview

Collection houses the entirety of William Gedney's original photographic work as well as professional and personal papers, from his student years at Pratt Institute in the 1950s to his early death in 1989. The materials reveal Gedney's intense dedication to his work, and his interest in street photography, portraiture, night photography, creative composition, and the study of the human form and human nature. Although he spent much of his life photographing his home neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, his work took him across the United States several times (with a focus on Chicago, Detroit, South Dakota, Kentucky and California), and to India, England, Ireland, Paris and Amsterdam. Photographic formats in the collection include negatives, contact sheets, work prints, exhibit-quality prints, test prints, personal snapshots, and thousands of color slides. There are roughly 76,000 unique images in the collection represented by the 2,112 contact sheets; there are over 19,000 images in the form of work or proof prints, and 1466 exhibit-quality large prints. Several thousand duplicates have been housed and described separately.

The availability of every format in the photographic process offers deep insights into Gedney's editorial process and artistic vision. Additional perspectives come from his many notebooks and journals; artwork; handmade books and book project materials; correspondence files; memo books; financial, legal and medical records; memorabilia; and other materials, all described in fuller detail in this collection guide.

Gedney's writings, in particular, provide an extraordinary glimpse into his life and work. Notebooks, memo books, travel diaries, and loose writings contain personal entries, essays, poetry, quotations, expenses, travel notes, observations on slang, music and book lists, and clippings. Together, Gedney's papers record his thoughts on photography, human behavior across continents, society and art, and on his own development as a photographer.

The large exhibit-quality prints, and their corresponding bodies of proof prints from which they were selected, are arranged by bodies of work, in alphabetical order: Composers; England/Ireland; The Farm; India, subdivided into Benares and Calcutta; Night; Nudes; Paris; and United States, further divided into the subseries Kentucky, New York, San Francisco, and U.S Trips. The latter comprises his travels to other states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Montana, and Tennessee.

There are two significant bodies of commercial work: the earliest consists of 1950s portraits of children and their teachers which were published as part of a promotional booklet commissioned by the St. Joseph's School for the Deaf. The second project was commissioned by the Social Security Administration in 1969 and contains portraits of rural inhabitants of Hays, Kansas, pensioners, and Federal employees.

For further descriptions of each of these bodies of work, please follow the series links in the collection guide, keeping in mind that contact sheets, which offer the most complete set of images in thumbnail size, form their own separate series.

Many of William Gedney's earliest images incorporate significant personal locations and people. His first serious photographic project centered on his grandparents and their dairy farm in Norton Hill, New York. During this period, Gedney also photographed neighborhoods in his birthplace, Albany, and his hometown of Greenville. Photographs of friends and family in New York (Arnold and Anita Lobel), San Francisco (Eric Hoffer and Lili Osborne), and Paris (photographer Raghubir Singh and wife Anne Henning) are found throughout the collection. Self-portraits of Gedney show up frequently in the contact sheet images.

Gedney was particularly drawn to cities and crowds. He photographed people not only on New York City streets, but also at car shows, flower shows, motorcycle rallies, and body building exhibitions (where he also photographed Diane Arbus). He continued to focus on crowds everywhere he traveled, particularly in large cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, London, and Paris, often turning his camera to young people and their street culture, and to marches and rallies for gay rights in California and New York, and organized labor in Southern California (Cesar Chavez appears in several images).

The photographic materials also house a handful of copy prints and contact sheets of Gedney images created by Margaret Sartor and Julie Stovall and others affiliated with the Duke University Center for Documentary Studies. Finally, there is also a cluster of late 1980s contact sheets and prints processed by Gedney's close friend Peter Bellamy from rolls of film found among Gedney's belongings at his death.

Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Sources for Image and Folder Titles

Preferred source for single image titles: titles written by Gedney on the backs of photographic prints. Second source: index cards prepared by Gedney for individual best-quality prints. Third source: captions written by Gedney on contact sheets, describing photo sequences. When no title is found, library staff have used "No title known."

Titles on folders of proof and test prints typically derive from those assigned by library project staff in the 1990s; some of these likely were derived from Gedney's original box and folder labels, but it is impossible to determine which ones.

Gedney's negatives were housed in original sleeves that bore titles in Gedney's handwriting. These may have served as the source for many of the folder titles for proofs and finished prints. Also, Gedney marked contact sheets with titles; these were also used by library staff to assign titles.

Contents of the Collection

1. Composers, 1965-1968

Series Overview

Gedney's most ambitious early book project centered on portraits of fifty American composers. Beginning around 1965, Gedney wrote letters of introduction to dozens of notable composers, inquiring about their willingess to participate in his project. Several of these letters are found in the Correspondence Series. The names of those whose portraits are in the collection are too many to list here, but include Aaron Copland, Milton Babbitt, Samuel Barber, William Bergsma, John Cage, Leonard Bernstein, Lukas Foss, Kenneth Gaburo, Elliott Gould, Roy Harris, Lou Harrison, Ben Johnston, Salvatore Martirano, Giancarlo Menotti, Darius Milhaud, William Grant Still, and Henry Weinberg. Only one woman composer is included: Pauline Oliveros at Mills College, California.

Taken between 1965-1969, these remarkable portraits were taken in the composers' homes, offices, and studios in cities such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco; Gedney also took more informal photographs of composers at parties and performances, and often with families and pets. Gedney admired John Cage in particular and took many photographs of him, including a set taken at a 1968 re-staging of the Electric Circus performance of early synthesizer music. The John Cage sequence also features Cage's collaborators and friends, among whom Alison Higgens, Merce Cunningham, Jasper Johns, Gordon Mumma, and Alison Knowles.

The complete book mock-up, or maquette, of the unpublished American composers project can be found in the Book Projects Series. Lists of composers' names, dates, and locations where they were photographed, correspondence on publication efforts, and notes on the project can be found in the Correspondence, Writings and Notebooks, and Grants and Work Files series. Additional test prints can be found in the Film and Development Tests series.

Prints in this series are arranged in rough chronological order.

Proof Prints

Proof prints represent a selection of images marked by Gedney on the contact sheets for further editing and finishing. Most prints in this Composers series measure 5x7 inches. They are arranged by legacy id codes assigned by Gedney, and are roughly chronological. In most cases, titles originate from original labels; some folders were assigned titles by library staff according to the known content.

2. England and Ireland, 1974 Summer

Series Overview

These images were taken during a summer trip to the United Kingdom, Gedney's first overseas trip. He visited Dublin, Ireland, where he captured urban street life, youth culture, riverside and coastal scenes, and the social aspects of Dublin's horse races, then took a ferry to England, where he spent most of his time in London and Brighton, again focusing on street life, youth culture, and daily life in the beach resort of Brighton.

Prints in this series are arranged in rough chronological order. Titles of finished prints, if given, were assigned by Gedney.

3. The Farm, 1954-1961

Series Overview

Gedney's earliest experiences with a film camera took place on his grandparents' dairy farm in Norton Hill, New York State. Featured in these photographs are the places familiar to him from childhood: the road leading up to the farm, the stone walls, barns, the cattle, hills, and fields. At the center of this world are Gedney's grandparents, who are witnessing the passing of their way of life as they go about their daily routines. Other family members also appear: Gedney's parents, other relatives, and younger brother Richard.

The series ends with the auction of his grandparents' farm on a rainy day in 1961, prehaps after his grandfather passed away. These images are only found in the proof prints group.

Almost all of these prints bear the simple title "Farm." A few have formal titles, perhaps because they were published or exhibited.

Prints are arranged in rough chronological order. Finished print titles, if given, were assigned by the photographer.

Proof Prints

Proof prints represent a selection of images marked by Gedney on the contact sheets for further editing and finishing. The proof prints for the Farm series house the only existing prints from the farm auction in 1961.

Most of the proofs measure 5x7 inches, but in this early series there are also smaller 3x5 inch proof prints, as well as some measuring 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches, and a set of 28 larger 8x10 inch prints, probably produced much later. They are arranged by legacy id codes assigned by Gedney, and are roughly chronological. In most cases, folder titles were assigned by library staff according to the known content.

4. India, 1969-1971, 1979-1980

Series Overview

The largest single body of photographs in the collection (429 prints) derives from several trips that Gedney took to India: the first, in 1969, sponsored by a Fulbright Fellowship, which took him to old Delhi and Benares (Banaras or Varanasi), then another in 1979, when he returned to visit Calcutta (Kolkata) for about four months. From these transformative experiences came the thousands of images preserved on contact sheets, then the hundreds of exhibit-quality prints in this series.

Additional test prints can be found in the Film and Development Tests series.

The photographic body of work is accompanied by many loose papers and notebooks, in which Gedney recorded his reflections on Indian daily life and culture, details of scenes and conversations, quotes on Indian culture, lists of readings, and telephone numbers and addresses of contacts. These manuscripts are all found in the Writings and Notebooks series.

Records associated with these trips are also found in the Grants and Work Files and in the Correspondence. An article written by Gedney on the work of Indian photographer and friend Raghubir Singh is found in the Print Materials Series.

The India photographs portray a rich variety of scenes: street life, including passersby, merchants, shops, and markets, sleeping people, and domestic animals; processions, Ganges river rituals, and religious and cultural celebrations such as Holi; Yantra and Shiva pujas, or temples; elaborate weddings; actors, athletes, acrobats, and other entertainers; ritual wrestlers; religious yogis with their followers; and artists and artisans, such as painters, weavers, sculptors, and photographers, working at their crafts. Interior scenes are fewer by comparison but include palace rooms and courtyards, offices, and museums, and more rarely, people's homes. While in Benares Gedney also traveled to a small country village, presumably near the city, and took many photographs in that setting. One series of images from Calcutta was taken during monsoon season, and vividly conveys street life accompanied by constant rains. There are also many night scenes, primarily of festivals, and people and animals sleeping on the streets and near the river.

Greatly interested in Indian popular and folkloric art, Gedney photographed Benares' ubiquitous and unique wall paintings, also known as "bhitti chitrakala," as well as political graffiti, advertisements, and other forms of visual culture. He appears to have used images from the wall paintings frequently in his teaching, and produced large sets of color slides of them to show in classes; these are found in the Slides Series.

Prints in this series are arranged in rough chronological order.

Benares

These images from one of India's largest and most ancient cities were taken by Gedney from 1969 to 1971 as part of a project funded by a Fulbright Fellowhip for Photography. Also included in this series is a sequence of photographs taken at the beginning of Gedney's trip in the old city neighborhoods of New Delhi.

Most of the action in Benares is on the streets and on the Ganges riverside ghats, or steps, where Gedney documented a seemingly never-ending panorama of activity, people, and buildings. Subjects include vendors, markets, and customers; vehicles of every kind; museums and palace rooms, populated by visitors and solitary staff; children playing, studying in classrooms, and in orphanages; events such as weddings and parties; major religious festivals and smaller, personal rituals at temples or on the river; athletic rituals; gurus and their followers; families sleeping on rooftops and people sleeping at night on the streets; and domestic animals roaming the city. One sequence was taken during a procession of the Maharajah of Benares from his palace. Gedney also traveled to a small village at least once, capturing scenes of country life which contrast with those of the city. There are few interior scenes in family dwellings, though there are several portraits of families and images of family life out-of-doors.

Finally, Gedney was fascinated with Indian art, focusing his camera on artists' studios, craftspeople's rooms, and especially on the folkloric wall paintings found throughout the city. These paintings appear in the collection not only as black-and-white prints, but are also present as one of the few sets of color images in the collection, in the Slides Series.
