The subseries contains transparencies, slides, and glass plate and film negatives primarily of works of art by Marcel Duchamp. Of particular interest is a glass plate negative of the cast shadows of several of Duchamp's Readymades. The subseries also includes three portraits of Duchamp, including one with his head shaved in the form of a comet and marked "Voici Rrose Sélavy." There is also a negative of Roche's view of Duchamp's 33 W. 67th Street studio with the "Traveller's Folding Item" in foreground.
