Camilo José Vergara photographs, 1977-2009

5 Linear Feet — 87 Items
Camilo J. Vergara is a documentary photographer, focusing on the evolution of urban spaces. Collection of color prints from Vergara's 2009 National Building Museum exhibit Storefront Churches, with photographs of urban churches, pasters, and murals from cities around the United States. This exhibit was part of a larger collection featured in Vergara's book, How the Other Half Worships.

Collection consists of 85 color prints, ranging in size from 11x14 inches to 20x24 inches, as well as two 30x30 color transparencies. These images were all part of the National Building Museum's 2009 Vergara exhibit, "Storefront Churches," and many are also featured in his recent book, How the Other Half Worships (2005).

Subjects include urban churches in cities throughout the United States, in particular New York City and its neighborhoods (such as Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx), Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Gary, and Camden. Vergara's photographs vary in what part of each church is highlighted: some are simply the church's exterior, offering a glimpse of the neighborhood and condition of the building; other images are taken inside the church, whether it be an abandoned sanctuary or an active praise service. The collection also contains, to a lesser extent, photographs of religious and spiritually-inspired murals and artwork from different urban environments; cemeteries and outdoor worship spaces; and some portraits of different pastors and preachers, including street preachers. Most of the churches represented in the collection are Pentecostal, Baptist, or some other branch of Evangelical Protestant Christianity.

The collection documents the evolution of church structures, such as the series of rephotography of a Chicago building that evolved from the Holy Raiders Revival Church in 1981 to the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in 2009. Vergara rephotographed the building six times during that period, and each time the building's facade and surroundings had changed significantly. Vergara's photographs also offer one-time glimpses of abandoned and decaying buildings, as well as documentation of reclaimed and re-used urban structures, such as the former Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that is now a worship center in Newark.

Most of the photographs were printed by Andrews in his darkroom from the early 2000s to 2020.
Jesse Pyrant Andrews (b. 1949) is an American photographer based in rural southern Virginia. Collection comprises 257 black-and-white photographs and 39 oral interviews by Jesse Pyrant Andrews documenting rural and small-town life in the Piedmont plateau of central southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. Major themes center on the landscapes and people of the region; tobacco cultivation; the lives of farmers, war veterans and laid-off workers; local architecture and historic sites; traditional crafts and music; and new patterns of economics and society in rural Virginia. The materials also include a Vietnam War veterans manuscript memoir and numerous oral histories of veterans. Additional projects include documentary narrative about the southern Virginia Carter-Wooding families; views from an Amtrak train; and street scenes and portraits taken in New York City, California, and Massachusetts. Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Collection comprises 257 black-and-white photographs and 39 oral interview recordings by Jesse Pyrant Andrews documenting rural and small-town life in the Piedmont plateau of central southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. Most of the images are portraits of farming families, immigrant workers, former textile workers, war veterans, musicians, and other local people, with scenes from homesteads, small towns, farms, and grave sites. Major themes include tobacco cultivation; the lives of war veterans and laid-off workers; regional architecture and historic sites; and traditional activities such as music-making, making handmade firearms, and working with leather. Together, the images and interviews speak to enormous changes in this rural Piedmont region as it transitions into the 21st century.

Three bodies of work whose images are found in the Portraits and Virginia series are referred to by Andrews as the Veterans, Vietnam, and Carter-Wooding Projects. The first two document the lives and struggles of U.S. veterans of World War II and the Vietnam and Gulf wars, and includes many audio interviews. The second project, also accompanied by several oral histories, documents two Halifax County, Virginia families, the Carters and Woodings, and their rural property which dates back to an 18th-century Huguenot land grant. The materials also include a Vietnam War manuscript memoir.

Additional photo projects in the collection document the lives of former textile workers (also accompanied by oral histories); a trip on an Amtrak train; and street life and people in New York City, California, and Massachusetts.

Most of the photographs are accompanied by captions written by the photographer, commenting on the individuals, their life experiences, and aspects of local culture and society.

Photographs from the series documenting tobacco farming, "13-Month Crop," were selected for a 2002 exhibit of Andrews' work hosted by the Rubenstein Library at Duke University.

A large selection of photographs in this collection has been digitized and is available online as part of the Duke Digital Collections.

Series contains 38 11x14 inch black-and-white (gelatin silver) prints exhibited at Duke University's Perkins Library, August 7-December 14, 2002. Andrews spent one tobacco farming season, April 2000 to April 2001, using a traditional film camera to document the lives of the people who were involved in cultivating tobacco on the Moore family farm in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Images portray the white farm family members as well as migrant Latino farmworkers. Tobacco farming is such labor-intensive work that it is often called a "13-month crop."

These circuit plans, collected by Frank Baker, document the history, growth, and organization of the itinerancy, established by John Wesley in the early years of the church when Methodism began to spread into the rural areas of England. The plans feature detailed schedules of where the itinerant preachers, known as circuit riders, were to appear and preach each week.

The Frank Baker Collection of Methodist Circuit Plans, 1777-1984 and undated, consists predominantly of circuit plans from the Methodist Church (Great Britain) and the earlier churches that merged to form it in 1907 and 1932: the Wesleyan Methodist Church, the Primitive Methodist Church, the United Methodist Free Churches, and the United Methodist Church (Great Britain). These plans document the history, growth, and organization of the itinerancy, established by John Wesley in the early years of the church when Methodism began to spread into the rural areas of England. The circuit plans feature detailed schedules of where the itinerant preachers, known as circuit riders, were to appear and preach each week.

Items in the 19th Century and Overseas Circuits Series were donated in the 1970s and were organized at the item level and encapsulated in the early 1980s. Items were numbered in the order in which they were encapsulated, which bears no relationship to alphabetical order or circuit organization. They are currently boxed in numerical order in three boxes with the following number ranges: Box 1: items 1-240; Box 2, items 241-390; Box 3: items 391-527. Items in the 20th Century Series, numbering around 800 to 1000 items, were donated in the late 1980s and are organized to the folder level.
