PDE: Police Department Evidence

WARNING: THIS COLLECTION CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES OF HOMICIDE VICTIMS. In addition to crime-scene and law-enforcement photographs, this collection includes photographs from the departmental operations and emergency services units, dating from 1928 to 1941. The departmental photographs document activities unrelated to criminal investigations such as political organizations monitored by the "Alien Squad.

" The Emergency Services Unit photographs document mayhem including street car accidents, early airplane crashes, explosions, drowning victims, and the proverbial cat stuck in a tree. Crime-scene photographs depict homicide victims, police officers, vehicles, horses, dogs, evidence, police equipment, mug shots, and fingerprints. The Long Exposure of Francesca Woodman by Elizabeth Gumport. Given that her complete catalogue is composed almost entirely of work she produced as a student, the posthumous critical esteem for American photographer Francesca Woodman is astonishing.

The Long Exposure of Francesca Woodman by Elizabeth Gumport

Unlike music or math, where precocious displays of talent are not uncommon, photography tends not to have prodigies. Woodman, who committed suicide in 1981 at age 22, is considered a rare exception. That she has achieved such status is all the more remarkable considering only a quarter of the approximately 800 images she produced—many of them self-portraits—have ever been seen by the public. Now, on the thirtieth anniversary of her death, Woodman is having something of a moment. In coming months, her work will be shown by several British galleries, and later this year San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art will mount a major retrospective of her work, the first of its kind in the United States. The phrase is more than apt. Her first suicide attempt came three years later, in the autumn of 1980.
