A Note about the Slide Collection:

From 1989 until 2006 I used Nikon film cameras and lenses to document art and architecture in Latin America and Europe shooting

mostly on Fuji 50 slide film, but also using other Fuji films and some Kodachrome and other Kodac products.

The following is a general summary of the holdings in the slide collection, about half of which is not yet catalogued slide by slide. Nevertheless, the uncatalogued

portions of the collection are systematically arranged by research trip in the sequence in which they were taken.They are stored in archival sheets of 20 slides in 3-ring

binders for easy access.


Many of these are available now  as digital images in catalogued sets and any other slide images are available as digital images in high resolution tiff or other format upon request.

Since 2006 new additions to the collection have been in digital format using Nikon Digital cameras and lenses, see items listed in the

column to the left to see the digital collections for North Africa, Egypt, Sicily, Roman Empire, Christian Rome, Gothic Art and Architecture, Ancient Persia, and the

large collection of Islamic Art and Architecture that includes Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt.
