    John Elder & Armin T Wegner portfolios online

    Circa WW1 photographers. I thought Werner's two portraits of the refugees were exceptional considreing they were taken under clandestine circumstances.

    My mistake! The portraits I was referring to are in the John Elder portfolio, the photos entitled "Refugee" in the far right and the far left columns.

    when i saw these photographs the first time, it was my junior year of college.
    i had 3 classes that day, they were all LONG classes, and death was the general theme.
    the first one was all the glass plate images of the civil war battle field dead.
    the second one was a class on the genocide, and along with these images
    we saw many others together with oral histories from the survivors of the
    death marches in the syrian desert.
    and then ... jeffrey silverthorne presented our class with his b/w portraits of
    people who died of unknown causes - morgue portraits.
    it was hard to take all of it in one day ...

    unfortunately, i couldn't make it to see jeffrey silverthorne's color work.

    thanks again for posting the link ...
