The portfolio, gifted to George Eastman House in 2013, contains self-styled documentary work from more than thirty countries by artists Shelby Lee Adams, Eve Arnold, Mark Asnin, Ernesto Bazan, Donna CeCesare, Bruce Davidson, Nan GOldin, Antonin Kratochvil, Andrew Moore, Sebastio Salgado, and Fazal Sheikh.
