Jimmye Kimmey Photography Collection, 1969-2013
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

This collection contains the photography and personal papers of Jimmye Elizabeth Kimmey. A significant portion of the photographs were part of an exhibit in the University of North Texas Union Gallery, which ran from October 5th-23rd, 2009. The black and white photographs are images of museums and architecture from around the country, as well as several shots of the University of North Texas campus buildings. Color photography is also included from the 2007 and 2008 period, while some photographs were originally shot during the 1969-1972 and 1977 periods but were included here as reprints.

Additional photographs from beyond the exhibit are also included, similarly of landscapes and architecture in New York City, Texas, and beyond, as well as negatives and photo scrapbooks. Some include her shooting notes of how she technically achieved her shots. All photos are in black and white unless otherwise noted. Within Kimmey's papers are personal notes, religious documents and research related to her position as an Episcopal priest, correspondence, notebooks, and doucments related to some of her family, like her father, John.
