The Mexican Suite Case

February 25, 2011

I spent nearly the whole afternoon looking at the rare first exhibit of : http://www.icp.org/museum/exhibitions. The Mexican Suitcase looks like a homemade box of card board with cordoned space that held rolled up 35mm film negatives. This was also in conjunction to the Cuban Revolution with many rare Che contact sheets. There is a Netflix film about how the famous iconic Che portrait arrived. Both shows displayed contact sheets along with the famous prints. The Mexican Suitcase has more contact sheets. I had not seen any contact sheets at all in a museum. It was good to see that the pros also had over exposed or rough shots before they nailed it.
