Year Photo was Taken: 1895 What Happened? A photographer, Oren Jeffries, went exploring in the unchartered depths of the Grand Caverns, VA. He was trying out different techniques to capture anything that moved in the cave’s darkness. Hearing something scuffling in the blackness, he ran, the flash shooting as he went. His camera was recovered years later, documenting something in the blackness.
Year Photo was Taken: 1935

The Harlow Twins
Year Photo was Taken: 1938
What Happened? Evergreen Park, Illinois became the site of a tragedy when Tammie Harlow’s car spun out of control, sending her twin boys Billy and Stevie flying fatally through the windscreen. Tammie lived but the children were killed. However, look closely at the photograph and it seems that the little twin boys stayed long enough to see their mother rescued.

The Tragedy of the Sorrensons
Year Photo was Taken: 1916
What Happened? A Danish family who immigrated to Missouri in the early 20th Century, the Sorrensons fell victim to a horrible tragedy. The three children in this photo were playing on the family farmstead, falling asleep in the hay when they were tired. Unknowingly, their father drove his harvesting machine through them, shredding his children to pieces. The circled area on the photo captures imperfections in the photographic film - marking exactly the location where the children were slaughtered.

Year Photo was Taken: 1908
What Happened? Lake View School in Collinwood, Ohio was destroyed by a devastating fire March 4, 1908. 172 children and two teachers were killed. Every single person in this photo died, apart from Mr. Olson, a teacher circled in the back row.

Christopher Williams, TecTake Luxus Strandkorb grau/weiß, Model no.: 400636, Material: wood/plastic, Dimensions (height/width/depth): 154 cm × 116 cm × 77 cm, Weight: 49 kg, Manufactured by Ningbo Jin Mao Import & Export Co., Ltd„ Ningbo, Zhejiang, China for TecTake GmbH, Igersheim, Germany, Model: Zimra Geurts, Playboy Netherlands Playmate of the Year 2012, Studio Rhein Verlag, Düsseldorf, February 1, 2013, (Zimra stretching), 2013.
In my photo of Zimra Geurts, who was the Playboy Netherlands Playmate of the Year in 2012, there are references to Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle, in which automobiles, women in bikinis, and topless models appear; as well as references to Harun Farocki’s film Ein Bild, which is about a Playboy centerfold shoot in Munich in the 1970s. Farocki’s film is really about the labor that goes into constructing an image, in that case one associated with male pleasure. The diagonal strip that says “Balcar” is a representation of the soft box light that was used in the Farocki film. Of course the stripes on the strandkorb konsul [beach chair], relate to the artist Daniel Buren. So what comes together in this picture is a montage of several elements: Playboy, Buren, Debourd, and Farocki.
Farocki has a strong place in that picture, stronger than I thought he would, but I think my picture gets to a different place than his film. I think Zimra has a different function in my picture actually, a more active function.
…It’s not only about the economy of her body, but also about her creating the opportunity to produce a new unexpected instructional model in the place where the viewer expects to encounter a familiar stereotype.
