‘Drowned Firemen, Bern’ is a rescued archive of water-damaged, 35mm slide-transparencies, of firemen, taken by firemen. The slides are a record of some of the fires fought by the firemen of Bern, Switzerland from the mid 1970s to the late 1990s. The entire archive was ruined when a water-pipe burst, flooding Bern fire station, where the slide collection was housed in the basement.
