Getting into the Archives: Mark Gordon’s Slide Photos

OSU alum Mark Gordon — the donor of the diablada masks currently on view in Dancing with Devils: Latin American Masks Traditions — also donated a trove of archival materials connected to his 1987 field research documenting diablada mask traditinos throughout Latin America. Among the archives are an incredible collection of slide photographs, which have proven a challenge to digitize and share. But we are thrilled to announce that we have cracked it, and have started scanning! Below are three images Gordon took. Stay tuned for more images and context!
