THE NEW YORK TIMES: “INSIDE THE LIVELY MORGUE”
The New York Times started a Tumblr account earlier this year in March, and since then has been release stunning photograph after stunning photograph. The archive is guessed to contain 5-6 million prints and 300,000 sacks of negatives, and each photo represents a different time in human history and a part of the story of our nation. While the collection has been threatened to be killed off time and time again, the “Lively Morgue” has given the rare collection of photographs a permanent home - or semi permanent digital one depending on who you talk to. This video by Tumblr’s new interview series Storyboard walks us through an old world way of doing things brought to new life by the digital era.
