Abstract:

The Harold Corsini Photograph Collection contains photographs produced from the 1940s to the 1970s. Approximately 440 projects are represented in print, negative, and slide form. Many jobs for the US Steel Corporation are industrial in content. Other photographs produced for local and national advertising agencies were captured from locations around the country as well as in the studio. All are commercial and creative in content. Photographs produced for US Steel artistically represent the essence of the steel industry. From labor to output, and followed by unique advertisements of commercial goods, the culture of the company is widely portrayed. Included are interior and exterior views of steel mills nationwide, depicting machinery, architecture and surrounding landscapes. Employees are creatively portrayed in varying aspects from executive portraits to visual documentaries of steel production. Corsini worked principally with two main advertising agencies: Kellogg Media Group (KMG) and Barton, Durstine & Osborn (BD & O). Photographs were also produced for national and local firms including Iron Age Shoes and Westinghouse. Other notable western Pennsylvania companies that Corsini worked with were Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company (PPG), Alcoa, and H.J. Heinz Company. Photographic advertisements vary from studio-based commercial shots featuring products such as food goods, office equipment, and bath fixtures, to on-site views of architecture and interior design. A small portion of the collection contains personal artistic photographs taken while traveling in India, Thailand, and Egypt highlighting local temples, monuments, and people. Also included are black and white images, taken by Corsini in the Pacific while serving as a WWII correspondent, featuring war aircraft and personnel; as well as unrelated commercial portraits and other works.
