Movie Stills

The usual assumption about a photograph is that the photographer was present when the negative was made. However, I found these images in porno stores as 16 mm films. Since I did not have a projector, I looked at the images frame by frame in the enlarger until I found the one I wanted. The text was taken directly from the Kinsey Reports (books on human sexual behavior). Toner and paint are used on silver gelatin prints to remove them from the idea of a photograph as a document.
