Places

Barnes filed some proof sheets by the name of the place where the photographer made the photographs rather than a topic. Selecting a place name from the list and clicking on “Go” will execute a search on that place name, but only in the “Photographer’s Proof Sheet Category” field. The results, therefore, will be only those images found on proof sheets filed by place name, not all the images that may be in the collection for that place.

Please note: if you want to find all the photographs made at a given location, conduct your search using the field “Geographic Location”; for images of a place, search using the field “Subject Geographical.” For example, a photograph of a meeting in Durham, while made there, does not depict Durham in the manner that a street scene does. A photograph of a meeting in Durham would not have a geographical subject entry.
