o prezentare in franceza si cateva fotografii - de Daniel Racovitan la: 13/11/2003 01:03:12
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Tot despre Dinu Lazar, o prezentare in franceza si cateva fotografii:
http://www.onlinero.com/dinu_lazar/

Citez: Absolvent de l'Institut de théâtre et cinématographie de Bucarest - section Image, Dinu Lazar a débuté dans la cinématographie et a collaboré à une trentaine de films. Son palmarès est aussi impressionnant que l'étendue de ses domaines d'intérêt. Moniteur de plongée, spécialiste des images sous-aquatiques mais aussi aériennes, depuis 1985 il s'est dédié exclusivement à la photographie d'art.
Membre de la FIAP et de l'Association des Artistes Photographes Roumains, son travail est reconnu et apprécié au niveau international. Dinu Lazar est également le fondateur et le directeur du magazine roumain dédié à la photographie FOTOMAGAZIN.
Son credo artistique se retrouve dans une citation de Proust : "La photographie est l'art qui montre de combien d'instants éphémères la vie est faite".


Mea culpa! - de Dinu Lazar la: 14/11/2003 05:51:03
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Pe omu` respectiv il cheama Spencer Tunick. Se gasesc pe web multe poze realizate de el.

Coincidenta este ca domnia sa a fost motivul unui schimb de replici in lista de discutii Fotopro, intre mine si un fotograf american, mai putin prezent pe net - pentru ca uraste computerul - si anume Bruce Esbin.

Intii imi scrie Bruce:

===========================

Spencer Tunick, he is the DUDE!!! When someone is able to get 450
naked women to pose for them in Grand Central Station in NYC, then they are the greatest photographer in the world. Until someone is
able to do this on the Moon then his title will remain.

===========================================

La care eu raspund:

> I am very curious to see what pictures it have made...
>
> His site is ... I have not words... go here:
> http://www.spencertunick.com/individuals.html
>
> It is an idiot... This pictures are made by a groggy man... I cannot
> believe.

> Best regards,
>
> Dinu
=============================================
La care Bruce:

Though I was making a joke about Tunick being the "world's greatest
photographer". All joking aside however I do think he is a great
photographer, and I'll tell you why. Photography as you know is just a
tool that allows people to see many different things in a two
dimensional world, a world that despite being two dimensional still
enables us to experience the image on a high information level.

For me the genius of what Tunick does is showing the Homo-Sapien
species as group of animals without the usual protective barrier of
clothing in different and varied environments. Very interesting
environments at least for me. Buenos Aires, New York City, Antarctica,
Vienna, St. Petersburg, etc. all juxtaposed with a single naked human
form or in huge naked groups. It is strangely interesting because it is
something we would never see otherwise especially the groups. In that
sense it is art because it allows us to see something very unique and
thought provoking on the nature of being human.

Some people could say anyone with a camera could take a picture of a
naked person outdoors, and they would be right, however let them try
and go through the effort to organize the large groups of people and
get the permission of international city governments as Tunick
succeeded in doing. So for me Tunick is far from being an "idiot" or a
"groggy man". For me he is a genuine artist with a nice sense of humor who is exploring the human form in an interesting way through the use of photography.
==========================================

Replica mea este:

> All that you write here is a good sense and true. Seeing so, it is OK.
>
> But... the light, the composition, the color, the perspective, the art?
>
> I need only a idea, only a concept? I do not need any professional sense of the light?
>
> I believe that you understand me...
>
> When I see a picture, I give in my mind notes for technique, art (
> composition) and idea.
>
> 0+0+10/3=3,3...

=======================================
Si Bruce continua:

Sometimes the technique is secondary to the concept, sometimes the technique is the concept. What I've found refreshing with Tunick's photography is his relative lack of obvious technique, the almost snapshot like quality of his pictures, as if he just showed up accidently with a Ricoh G1 loaded with color negative film and just snapped a shot of this strangeness before him.
This is what gives it power, the utter banality of technique.

============================================================

Asa ca si intre profesionisti parerile sunt impartite.
Succesul comercial al lui Tunick este insa imens.
Mie personal nu imi place ce face. Asta nu conteaza desigur.

Am vrut sa vedeti insa dincolo de usile inchise cam cum gindesc fotografii...sau unii dintre ei.

Dupa mine, talent este sa iei o cizma si sa o fotografiezi, si sa para mai atragatoare si mai sexy decit o playmate, nu sa umpli o gara cu o suta de femei goale si sa faci glamour.

Sic transit - de Florin M la: 04/12/2003 12:33:04
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Este intr-adevar mare pacat ca nu exista fotocluburi functionale. Sunt totusi o multime de entuziasti care fac sau doresc sa faca fotografie. Si chiar as fi curios cate persoane viziteaza zilnic www.fotomagazin.ro. Pentru ca site-ul este interesant si atat timp cat se vinde destul de bine Responses Photo sau Chasseurs D'Image bag seama ca sunt multi care au aceleasi preocupari si ar putea din cand in cand sa se adune, sa mai imparta din experiente, sa mai fure cate ceva de la cei mai consacrati. Pentru ca cei amatori nu fac poze pentru bani, fac pentru ei, in cea mai mare parte, in Romania. Si pentru cativa cunoscuti care suint prin jur. Ma bucur ca un Cosmin Bumbut a reusit sa stranga pe langa el cativa (chiar si fotografi romani!!!) si sa faca o "unitate de creatie". Dar este nevoie si de lucruri de baza. Numai cati se invart pe langa magazinul f64. De fiecare data ma distrez. Ar putea face un club bunisor, acolo numai din clientii care ii intra zilnic :-)
Chiar, mai stiti si altceva de existenta unor cluburi care sa aiba un program sau sa fie cu adevarat functionale?

Banii si fotografia - de Dinu Lazar la: 20/04/2004 01:00:53
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
The Getty Images Money Machine
``````````````````````````````````````````````
The popular daily newspaper, USA Today, recently published a copyrighted article (by Byron Acohido) about the top stock photography agency in the world, Getty Images. Although the article focused on tracing Getty's successful rise to the top of the industry, it revealed some interesting numbers. Especially if you are considering working for the company as a freelancer.
First of all, let me reiterate my personal philosophy that I believe good
stock photography is the result of a photographer's (amateur or pro) abiding interest in specific subject areas. For example, wildlife, medicine,
education, children, aviation, sports, and so on. The resulting photographs have the opportunity to be both art and documentary. Eventually they may have historical significance and grow as an asset for a photographer's heirs. In the meantime, if the photographer finds matching markets for his or her interest areas, profits can be made.
If this is your worldview also, then you'll want to turn and run if a Getty recruiter asks you to be part of their freelancer team. Here's why.
I don't pretend to be an economics wizard, but in Pilgrim's Pride
Elementary School, I was pretty good at arithmetic. I think you'll agree
with me that the numbers presented in the USA Today article do not look pretty for freelancers.
They spin out like this.
The 2003 Getty Images gross revenue was $523.2 million, with net income of $64 million. (88% operating costs; 12% net profit). The author is quoted as saying 83% of Getty Images sales comes from freelancers. That's $434,256 ,000 in freelancer photos. Getty gives 40% of that to the freelancers.
That's $173,702,400 .
Getty has 2,500 freelancers (contributors), according to the author. That's $69,480.96 annually to a freelancer, or $190.36 per day (365/yr.).
Running a stock photo business can get to be a marathon, and get to be
expensive. Using Getty Image's own costs/net income ratio (88/12), that
would reduce a freelancer's $69,480.96 gross down to $8,337.72 net annually, or $22.84 per day. But since freelancers are known to be frugal, and government RMA annual statement studies show entrepreneurs to be Spartan,
let's lower the cost percentage (to 76%), and double the net income figure to 24% and make it $45.68 per day, ($5.75 per hour for an 8-hour day).
PRODUCING THE COMMODITY
To produce images, most of your costs are going to be eaten up in camera equipment, travel costs, insurance, lodging and meals.

Fratilor - de Dinu Lazar la: 13/05/2004 15:32:46
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Fratilor mei fotografi, care dau cu citeala pe aici uneori da` nu scriu un rind pen`ca ii doare deshtu pe tastatura, le transmit mesajul unui amic de pe o lista de discutii; cine are urechi de auzit, sa inteleaga, cine nu, asta e...

===============================================

Love him or hate him, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld provided a powerful endorsement for the value of photographs during his Congressional testimony this week. When asked why earlier written warnings of prisoner abuse issued by the International Red Cross hadn't stirred the same response as the recent photos have, Rumsfeld replied, "It's the photographs that gives one the vivid realization of what actually took place . . . words don't do it."
An official with Amnesty International (whose name I didn't catch) was also recorded saying, "pictures are crucial for getting the public turned on to the story."

Remember these words the next time an editor asks you to sign away your copyright, offers you a token sum because, "it won't run very large" or, "we NEVER pay more than that," or tries to tell you that they can probably just
find something from stock to "fill the space." Human beings' ability to
draw pictures predates our ability to read and write by tens, even hundreds, of thousands of years. And even in this age of image overload and digital everything, photographs still remain one of the most powerful forms of communication.

Go out and make good images, and don't let anyone diminish their value.

Hotzii... cine sunt hotzii???? - de Dinu Lazar la: 19/05/2004 15:25:37
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Who Are The Thieves?
````````````````````
Once a year, it seems, a question about thievery on the Internet comes up.
As I've written before -- thievery on the Web is certainly possible. With today's software capabilities, it's possible to 'res up' a 72 dpi image to 300 dpi with excellent results.
So, technically it's possible to "steal images" by capturing small images on the Web and increasing their resolution. In my book, sellphotos.com, I give some examples of misguided improper use of photos.
One example: A commercial printing company executive used a previously published photo from the company's digital file for unauthorized use in a commercial brochure. The photographer took him to court. And rightly so. But the infraction was a mistake -- not outright thievery.
As we rush pell-mell along in the new Digital Age, of course some honest mistakes are going to be made. We're all entitled to a few of those.

NOT OUR PHOTOBUYERS

However, since the emphasis at PhotoSource International is on editorial stock photography, not studio pictures, not commercial stock photos, we should keep in mind just who we are apprehensively thinking may steal a photo. Our markets are books and magazines. And relax: photobuyers at book and magazine publishing houses don't steal photos.
Nor do commercial art directors. The negative fall-out would be too damaging. But as I say, commercial photography is not our bailiwick. We have a greater advantage being editorial stock photographers-- we produce pictures that can easily be identified because of their uniqueness. We need to examine whether we're putting too much worry into a concern that does not deserve it.
A rare few early mistakes have been made as everyone gets introduced to the Digital Age. This has been a learning process for executives and printing company personnel as well as the general public, who are now learning the benefits of the Web. Eventually ignorance on appropriate handling of photos will diminish.
You won't find your photobuyers at publishing houses and magazines exhibiting such ignorance.

LURKING IN CYBERSPACE?

But the question is... "Is thievery rampant, or even existent, on the Web?"
Ever since photographers began realizing that it's possible for someone to "borrow" an image from the Web, I've heard warnings from my fellow camera columnists that thieves are lurking in cyberspace, waiting to steal your photos. Certain pros in our industry often perpetuate the myth at seminars and camera club meetings. They warn that photographers should beware, and that they should not expose images on the Web unless they are so tiny that someone could not profitably make use of them.

Veste importanta din Franta - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/05/2004 15:07:17
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Scrie un fotograf din Franta:

For those who intend to photography in France (you know the place where people have so exotic names, according to B. Yarvin) we have good news .
The cour de Cassation (our Supreme Court) has just stated a decision which largely is in favour of the photographers . I quote verbatim :
"le propriétaire d'un bien n'est pas le propriétaire exclusif de l'image de celui-ci" . Translation in my bad english : the owner of goods is not the exclusive owner of the image of these goods . The jurisprudence is so clear now that we can shoot buildings, houses and so on whithout fearing to loose in Court . There is one condition of course : not to be detrimental to the owner, by giving his adress for instance

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Festival de la photographie de mode (Cannes)
Pour sa deuxième édition, Cannes Photo Mode présente une sélection de cinquante photographies de mode dont une grande exposition des deux principaux invités du Festival : Jacques Olivar et Steve Hiett. Cannes devient ainsi la scène partagée par les différents acteurs et professionnels de la photographie de mode. En donnant chair à une certaine idée de la beauté, du sensuel, de l'érotisme, cet art a su, grâce à ses compositions originales, sa pertinence, sa technique et son imaginaire, sublimer son sujet. Pour la première fois, la Croisette et la Roseraie du port Canto sont “habillées” par des tirages photographiques sur bâches de trois mètres par cinq, qui permettront aux visiteurs de profiter d'œuvres prodigieuses dans des dimensions inattendues (du 19 juin au 19 juillet). D'autre part, une sélection de photographies ainsi que des grands formats noir et blanc ou couleur sont présentés dans les salles du Palm Beach Casino et sur sa terrasse (du 19 juin au 31 août).

Photos les plus vues sur photographe-de-mode.com
La section "top" a été créée il y a quelques temps et elle vient d'être remise à jour. Quelles sont les photos les plus "tendance" du moment ? Un outil vous permet de savoir quelles ont été les photos les plus "zoomées" par les utilisateurs du site.

Nouvelle ergonomie du site
Il y a 3 mois commençait la phase de test d'érgonomie du site www.photographe-de-mode.com. Ce test s'est transformé en en remaniement quasi total des sections couleur et noir et blanc. Quand on clique sur une vignette, l'image sélectionnée apparaît puis les autres images de la même série viennent se mettre en dessous. Cela réduit considérablement le nombre de clicks à produire et facilite le chargement à l'écran des images. De plus, 2 séries mode ont été rajoutées ainsi qu'une série de photos de lingerie.

Grève de SMS du 5 mai
Les SMS sont à 10 centimes, faites passer ! En avril dernier nous avions fait un appel à la grève des SMS (les opérateurs de téléphonie mobile réalisaient des marges de 600% sur vos SMS envoyés). Résultat : les SMS chez Orange sont passés à 10 centimes au lieu de 15 centimes.

Expo Guy Bourdin à Paris
Le Jeu de Paume a été chargé par le ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, de mettre en œuvre une politique ambitieuse en faveur de la photographie et de l’image dans un lieu prestigieux qui sera une référence dans ce domaine. Pour inaugurer ces nouvelles activités, Régis Durand, directeur du Jeu de Paume (Place Concorde à Paris), propose deux expositions : Éblouissement et Guy Bourdin, présentées du 24 juin au 12 septembre 2004, avec le soutien de Neuflize Vie.

Nous vous donnons rendez-vous le mois prochain pour la prochaine édition !

Merci et à bientôt

Si eu a trebuit sa o modific. Poza era mult mai mare. Nici eu nu ma prea pricep la manipulari de imagini dar vad ca de data asta mi-a mers. Am modificat-o in Corel Photo House, programul care-mi deschide toate pozele .JPEG sau .TIF sau .BMP. M-am dus apoi la Image Properties si acolo am schimbat rezolutia si marimea imaginii. Dar sint sigura sa se mai poate si altcumva. Sper sa-ti fie de folos.

"The Authority nevertheless considered that the retouched image used in the advertisement was comparable in resolution and definition to the un-retouched image sent by the advertisers"...Cunosc reclama si mi se pare un punct de vedere corect.
Am vazut recent campanii promotionale la polaroide, obiective VR Nikon si la Minolta A care folosesc imagini dincolo de posibilitatile reale ale produselor, si nu s-a suparat nimeni.

OK , am citit :

http://www.davidicke.net/religiousfrauds/christianity/origins.htm

Nu stiu daca la articolul acesta te-ai referit . Concluzia in acest articol seamana cu ce citisem eu in trecut . Citez :
"The Christ is a popular lay-figure that never lived, and a lay-figure of Pagan origin; a lay-figure that was once the Ram and afterwards the Fish; a lay-figure that in human form was the portrait and image of a dozen different gods. "

A dozen different gods ?. Eu stiam de 20 , dar ce importa ...

Ce scrisesem pe Forum de acest subiect concorda cu continutul acestui articol .
Daca te refereai la articolul acesta si esti de acord cu esenta lui , inseamna ca avem pareri asemanatoare . Ma cam mir , caci aveam impresia ca discutam in contradictoriu .
Te-ai referi , poate , la alt articol ?.

Next week, look for the first of our articles based on the reader's survey about the Best & Worst Magazines to shoot for, published in our September issue. In the first of these articles (available only online), we'll look at which magazines you rated are the best and worst in terms of rates, speed of payment, rights negotiation, use of photography and other criteria.

Also next week, we'll have more thoughtful advice from Bill Robbins on our Ask the Experts forum. We won't be posting Newswire next week, while our news editor heads to Perpignan for Visa Pour L'Image, but Newswire will return after Labor Day. Bonnes vacances!

acasa - de (anonim) la: 27/08/2004 12:59:44
(la: Castigati 1 milion de euro. Ce veti alege: Romania sau occident?)
ACASA
pentru mine si familia mea ACASA inseamna Bucuresti-Romania. Suntem mandri sa spunem ca suntem romani si incercam sa ii invatam pe 'straini' (prieteni de altfel) despre poezia romaneasca, muzica, istoria si chiar geografia. ce bine ma simt cand vad un englez minunandu-se: 'aveti tarm la mare????? care mare????' DA, ma simt bine, pentru ca eu stiu despre tarile europene mai mult decat stie el despre propria tara! si ca suntem toti simpli oameni cu lipsuri si defecte, dar si cu parti bune, cu totii insa 'victime' ale istoriei: ei nu stiu despre noi pentru ca inaintasilor nu li s-a parut necesar sa aiba astfel de cunostinte, noi avem cunostinte care in propria tara nu prea ne folosesc...
trebuie sa precizez ca intamplarea a facut sa mi se ofere un post aici pentru 5 ani, post de expertiza in domeniul meu; mai mult, parte din 'pachet' a fost sa am si familia cu mine... a fost un noroc, o intamplare fericita, nu un pas pe care l-am dorit neaparat sau la care sa ma gandesc prea mult. e important, pentru ca iti influenteaza foarte mult gandurile viitoare despre tara gazda; daca pleci cu gandul de a ramane o viata, atunci iti impui sa vezi in roz si lucrurile mai gri. la noi insa situatia a fost alta - am plecat cu gandul ca e temporar.
inainte de a veni aici, aveam o imagine idilica despre occident. din primele luni insa mi-am dat seama ca birocratia de aici e mult mai stricta si mai anevoioasa, ca serviciile medicale lasa de dorit in ciuda tehnologiei de top (desi, e drept, fara spaga, in schimb cu sume foarte mari platite societatilor de asigurari atat de catre angajator cat si de mine), ca eram mai in siguranta acasa mergand noaptea pe strada din cartierul meu, decat sunt aici in centrul orasului, ca cersetorii ca si vanzatorii de droguri (si nu sunt romani!) sunt foarte agresivi, ca pensionarii n-ar avea nici ei bani suficienti daca n-ar avea pensii private, ca politicienii sunt in buna parte corupti, ca poti sa favorizezi angajarea unor prieteni (pile)..... ca localnicii profita de faptul ca suntem straini si ne cer chirii mult mai mari si incearca sa ne pacaleasca cu contracte avantajoase doar de parte lor, ca oamenii sunt reci si se mira ca-i inviti la tine la masa si le dai tot ce ai mai bun, ca.... multe lucruri pe care le credeam posibile numai in tari sarace ca a noastra le regasesc in aceste tari 'bogate'. cei bogati sunt mult mai zgarciti, asa fac sa fie bogati, nu?
vin acasa aproape lunar pentru cate un sfarsit de saptamana, si lucrurile se schimba incet incet, vad diferente de fiecare data si ma bucur; diferentele le fac oamenii care stau acolo si muncesc pentru asta, dar si noi putem contribui aducand idei, impartasind experiente, invatand de la norocosii cu istorie si incercand sa schimbam viitorul nostru! Oamenii se trezesc incet incet din cosmarul comunist si devin din ce in ce mai deschisi la schimbare. spre deosebire de occidentali, carora le e teama de schimbare, le e teama ca realitatea in care traiesc, pe salarii bune si preturi mici (apropos: preturile pe care le platesc aici in supermarket sunt la fel cu cele pe care le platesc acasa la mega image, doar ca aici salariul e de 10 ori mai mare...), o sa se sfarseasca in curand... ei simt asta si se tem! noi simtim ca schimbarea de acasa e in bine, si ne bucuram! Noi, cei care traim in tari diferite de cea in care ne-am nascut, avem un mare avantaj fata de ei: avem mereu un loc unde sa ne intoarcem...
La fel ca expatriatii din Romania - cei pentru care viata e foarte buna acolo, ca si pentru noi aici: 'pachete salariale' mai bune, scutiri de taxe, case platite de companie etc...

Trebuie sa recunosc: vreau sa mai traim si sa mai muncim in alte tari decat acasa pentru cativa ani inca; e o experienta foarte buna, desi nu intotdeauna placuta, avem multe de invatat de la alte culturi. dar nu am face-o daca nu am avea posibilitatea sa ne intoarcem suficient de des!

Desi au trecut 3 ani si jumatate de cand am venit aici, gandesc la fel in privinta asta intoarcerii acasa!

revenind la milion, cu banii astia pe aici nu poti sa iei mai mult de o casa suficient de mare, confortabila si cu curte, intr-o zona decenta, poate si o masina noua daca renunti un pic la confortul din casa, sau poate ceva mai mult daca te multumesti cu un apartament intr-o cladire cu mai multe...
pe cand acasa ai mai multe oportunitati! iar acolo nu trebuie sa faci exercitii de integrare. numai acasa prietenii sunt cu adevarat si total prieteni!
Banii sunt insa suficienti doar pentru a-ti asigura un anume comfort. mult mai important e restul! Oriunde pe lumea asta, pentru a-ti fi bine pe toate planurile, trebuie sa faci compromisuri, depinde insa in ce tara compromisul pe care trebuie sa-l faci te satisface cel mai mult, e cel mai usor de trecut... Pentru noi a fi departe de prieteni vechi si buni, parinti, rude, casa, e cel mai greu de suportat.

La ei se poate face, la noi nu, ca suntem mai fraieri... - de Dinu Lazar la: 02/09/2004 01:08:19
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
La ei se poate face o istorie a fotografiei, la noi nu, caci suntem mai inapoiati, probabil... si cum pe vremea lu` Dracula nu se faceau poze, e pacat, pentru ca atit i-ar duce mintea, "Pictures with dr.Acula"...
Dar avem si noi partea noastra de vina.

HP Declare British National Photo Album a Success
HP Press Release 01/09/04

Britain's first National Photo Album unearths hidden photographic treasures

HP is pleased to announce the initial success of the National Photo Album, one of the most ambitious public archiving projects in recent history. Having urged the nation to dust off its old photograph albums and rummage through its attics, HP has been astonished to see people react so positively.

With over 5,000 images already submitted and more than 300,000 hits in the first two months, The National Photo Album has been embraced by the public. The search has uncovered some hidden gems from the photo albums of members of the public, such as:

- The enchanting image of Big Ben taken during the strikes in the 1970s, when fuel was at a premium and the spot lights had to be switched off
- A chance meeting with George Best relaxing on holiday in Majorca in 1972
- Young twins working a wooden washing machine in 1939
- A boxing match between sailors, to entertain the troops on HMS Emperor of India in 1915



"We expected a good response, but I don't think we ever imagined that people would react in such a positive manner. The HP National Photo Album is quickly turning into the vital photographic resource we always hoped it would. And there's no doubt that The Daily Mirror has contributed enormously to our success as we supplied its 'Pic of the Week' for almost two months," said Peter Urey, marketing and category manager for HP's Imaging and Printing Group. "No one else is providing a photographic resource which contains pictures solely taken by everyday people and we believed that this difference would offer a 'back stage pass' to our history, now we know for sure that it does."

The aim of The National Photo Album was to search for images of individuals, families, workplaces, events, outings, cities, towns and villages, all accompanied with the story behind each picture; anything which revealed something of the way Britain has worked, played, lived and loved over the past two hundred years. The results have been fascinating with a hugely varied collection of pictures and stories.

"The HP National Photo Album is an excellent incentive to keep British History alive," said one of the National Photo Album's visitors. "It's always great to be able to see other people's pictures of years, events and times gone by and I'm certain that as the word spreads, it will be a much visited site."

"We were hoping for pictures which would immediately provoke attention such as pictures of Elvis Presley's only visit to the UK, but what we have found is that we have received a far more interesting selection of stories," added Urey. "When you read a story about a 10 year old boy, with numerous siblings who was the only bread winner in his family, you realise the importance of these pictures as historical materials."

The HP National Photo Album is free to access at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk Anyone wanting to contribute to the archive can offer their pictures for consideration in one of two ways.

- Option 1: Upload images directly onto the archive at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk by following simple step by step instructions.
- Option 2: Submit entries via post to HP National Photo Album, 31 St. Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA where they will be vetted and uploaded by experts.


*All images must be accompanied by a suitably sized self-addressed envelope. Every effort will be made to return the images in good order but HP cannot be held liable for damaged or lost photographs.

HP has a unique history and expertise in digital imaging. Currently it is assisting museums and art galleries around the world including the UK's National Gallery, in digitising their collections to ensure that the world's most important images are captured for posterity. Now it is turning its attention to the treasure trove of photographs that lie gathering dust in the nation's attics.

By digitising and storing these valuable images HP is aiming to ensure that this valuable photographic inheritance is not lost and can be shared with millions of people. Suitable pictures will be added to the HP National Photo Album which will be a searchable online database of images that can be accessed and downloaded for free.

3 Photojournalists, 3 Stories, Much Dedication
