Series 8: Photographs; Slides; Photographic Negatives, 1936-1985
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
This series consists of loose color and black-and-white photographs and photo- collages, slides and photographic negatives of Giōrgos Vakalo personal and professional life; art exhibitions that Vakalo prepared or participated; art works; and theatrical plays. Most of the photographs bear handwritten explanatory notes in pen by Vakalo's daughter-in-law, Kathleen Vakalo. Also, during the organization process of this new material, it was decided to keep the original envelopes where the photographs were stored and transferred to Special Collections, as they bear handwritten notes by Kathleen Vakalo that might be useful sources for the researchers.
This series has been arranged mostly by subject.
Nothing was removed from the collection.
