Scope and Content Note

The series consists of photographs taken by Thompson and others. Photographs by Thompson include portraits and photographs of events. There are also a few photograph albums, which include photographs taken by Thompson that document her international travels. The album "The Hour Glass Project: The Caversham Press" includes photographs as well as an essay by Thompson describing her trip to Caversham, South Africa, as part of a grant-funded residency program. Two photograph albums document Thompson's trip to Dakar, Senegal, for the Biennale Internationale des Arts, and they include portraits and photographs of local scenes. The series also contains an album, "Germany in Transition," that documents street scenes in Berlin and other German cities circa 1990 after the fall of the Berlin wall; this unfinished album contains photographs that have been mounted as well as loose photographs. Among the photographs of Thompson is a series of oversized photographs taken by Karl Peters in the late 1960s and photographs of Thompson performing with her blues band, Wedo Blues. Other photographs include various individuals and places. Photographs of Thompson's artwork can be found in Series 2 Artwork.
