MORE ACTS OF HYGIENE

One of my many interests in photography is vintage black and white images that I collect from the net. Unfortunately, the photographers who took these are often lost to time or because they were not collected from sites that cite. Here are some pics depicting an act of hygiene called showering. Only one is credited, the first. It is from the sixties and is by Danny Lyon and is labeled Texas Department of Corrections, 1969. It is from a project he did in cooperation with the Texas Department of Corrections from 1967 to 1968 and was published in book form in 1971 called Conversations With the Dead.
