Institutional photographs

Materials in this sub subseries consist largely of photographs taken by McLennan and research assistants (J.L. Gijssen and Mila Cotic) of bent wood boxes and other artifacts that would benefit from infrared photography as part of the transforming image exhibit. These photographs were all taken at various museums and institutions that were visited by McLennan, or if photographs of the artifacts existed, McLennan received copies of these from various institutions.
