Photograph Collection - Possible Donation

SMA received the following request to spread the word about a collection of photographs that could be accepted by a small museum. Please respond directly to Mr. Riley with any questions or interest:

"Hello. I am interested in the possibility of donating, as an outright gift, a collection of photographs to any small museum that might be interested in obtaining these works. I seek your assistance in notifying your members of this offer.

The collection comprises thirty (30) black & white still life photographs printed on double-weight silver gelatin papers that are dry-mounted on white, 4-ply, acid and lignin-free, pH buffered, 100% cotton rag boards. Each photograph is approximately 10” x 13” in size. The mounts, French-cut mats, and backing boards are each 16” x 20” in size. All of the photographs are in pristine condition: all have been processed and handled using archival methods. Each photograph is signed in customary fashion and stamped on the back with identifying information. The mounted photographs are individually contained in polyethylene sleeves and all are stored in acid-free portfolio boxes.

The entire collection of 30 images can be viewed at: and There are 15 thumbnail images on each page. Click on the thumbnails for enlarged views of each image.

Please contact me at this email address or by telephone at (360)220-8000 if any of your member museums are interested in adding these photographs to their collections.

Norman E. Riley"
