Description

This subseries is comprised of three-ring archival negative pages (sleeved) interleaved with their respective contact sheets (unsleeved) in their original order. Almost all of this material is black-and-white and color negatives are indicated when present. Some of the earliest (1983) and latest negatives (1999) were separated from other materials and added to the arrangement.

In its entirety this subseries represents the chronological order of fine art photographs as taken by the artist and is the best resource available for dating many of the loose, undated, and misdated prints located in Subseries 2A: Prints and Slides. A few of the negative sleeves include annotations by Segal, such as location or month. Some prints are interleaved along with the contact sheets and most often indicate experiments in processing, especially in the case of the Egypt and Israel prints from 1983.

The bulk of the negatives (from 1984 to 2000) correspond to the time of creative cooperation with Donald Lokuta, and the contact sheets and print experiments were all developed by him. It should be noted that the 1983 folder is from before this collaboration, as those negatives had originally been stored with their prints in paper envelopes, now housed in the Subseries 2A: Prints and Slides. After 1983 and his collaboration with Lokuta, the artist formed the bulk of this subseries in binders with sleeves, and included contact sheets with the negatives.

Physical note: In some cases photographic prints and contact sheets are interleaved with their respective sleeved negative sheets. Researchers are asked to take care to preserve this arrangement while using the relevant files.
