Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection consists of 223 slides and 77 photographs taken during the last years of the Pinochet regime in Chile. Included are images of pro-democracy, anti-dictatorship, and human rights demonstrations; political graffiti; and various presidential and senatorial campaigning and celebrating (Aylwin, Büchi, Errázuriz, Lagos, Piñera, Palestro, Frei, etc.). There are also slides showing the casting of votes and of the general ambience during the elections.


Two main sections: 1) photographs (8/9/1984-5/1/1990), arranged chronologically, which generally concern anti-government and human rights protests, other demonstrations, and graffiti; and 2) slides, which span the period of campaigning immediately before the elections (12/14/1989) as well as the celebrations the day after.
