The world has moved so quickly to digital that you cannot even give away negatives for photographs taken in the past...

James Dee plans to give away his modern art archive

... but what someone should do here is invest some time & money to digitise it all.

A treasure trove for sure. I'm surprised the Smithsonian isn't biting. He could probably auction off each box--sort of like how owners of storage facilities auction off contents left in storage spaces when the rent checks stop coming in. There is an inane"surreality" tv show that airs here in the US; the theme of the show is auctioning off contents from storage facilities.

I suspect that if the frames were organised and labeled, some institution would do just that.  But to have to figure out what each frame individually represents is a monumental task and not one that's likely to be taken up quickly.

Upload thumbnails and crowd-source the labels.
