These photographs dating back to the 1910s show mass groups of U.S. military troops organized and photographed by Arthur Mole as well as a few other unidentified photographers. The troops were directed to lay down lace edging via megaphone to create the basic structure of the image. From there, they where photographed in their assemblages that resembled a variety of patriotic American symbols ranging from "The Human Liberty Bell" to "Living Portrait of President Woodrow Wilson". These and other works are currently on view at Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York.
