Michelle Vignes photograph archive

Creator/Contributor:

Vignes, Michelle, 1926-2012, creator, photographer.

Abstract:

Project documentation, contact sheets and photographs (work prints), filed by subject. Files on projects of small or moderate size (divided into "California" and "Beyond California") are followed by files for three more voluminous topics: Native Americans and the American Indian Movement, the Blues, and Ocumicho, Mexico. California projects (PIC boxes 1-9) contain subjects chiefly in San Francisco in the 1960s (PIC boxes 1-4) and 1970s (PIC boxes 4-9). Later California topics chiefly date from 1980s, with some as late as 1997 (PIC boxes 10-12). Among the many noteworthy California projects are materials created for a book project on the town of Petaluma (PIC box 7), and material for a proposed book on African American gospel churches, to be titled "Dressing Up for God" (PIC box 11). Projects (general topics) beyond California (PIC boxes 13-15) include work in U.S. locations chiefly in the American west and on a trip across the U.S. and Canada (PIC box 13) and international work in France, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Guatemala, and Mexico (PIC boxes 14-15). The American Indian Movement and other Native American files (PIC boxes 16-21) consist of photographs taken over the course of 3 decades. Subjects range from the occupation of Alcatraz to the siege at Wounded Knee to urban Indian health clinics, D-Q University, various pow wows, Dennis Banks and family, Leonard Peltier, and many other leaders and activists. Also documented are numerous Native American women, including artists and craftswomen and storytellers of the Southwest. In the 1990s Vignes continued to document Native Americans with work on Indian casinos and on basket weavers of California (PIC box 21). Project files on the Blues in the San Francisco Bay Area (particularly Oakland) constitute another significant body of work, and are filed separately from other California topics (PIC boxes 22-23). Photographs of Ocumicho, Mexico and its crafts people, taken on many visits, make up the last of the Project Files (PIC box 24).
"Concierges" portfolio of prints, issued as a boxed set by Neikrug Galleries, New York. 10 mounted prints, plus 1 unmounted print.
Approximately 250 exhibit prints from various projects, chiefly of the American Indian Movement and the Blues (8x10 in boxes 25-26, oversize in boxes 27-33, matted oversize in fffALB).
Color 35mm slides, chiefly of folk art, such as roadside installations and constructions, and 1 box chiefly on American Indian and Ocumichu projects.
Chiefly 35mm b & w negatives filed by photographer's code number, which are roughly chronological. "Best" negative boxes (NEG boxes 62-65) contain negatives removed from the main negative files and kept together by the photographer because of their subject matter and importance; namely, projects on Native Americans (American Indian Movement), the Blues, and Ocumichu.
Various subjects, including Native Americans, Mexico, casinos, Synanon, Black Panthers, opera, gospel, blues, France, truck stop (stored in TEMP).
