    The Getty Needs Your Help

    (moderators: If you need to move this, do so)

    The Getty Conservation Institute is looking for help in creating an archive of photographic materials.

    From the site:

    What You Can Do
    Send us samples of photographic paper and plates, film, negatives, sample books, and dated photographs. We need examples of all types of materials from every year since 1827. So, send us the box of Kodak Elite paper that might be collecting dust in your attic, that Foma film from 1985 that you think you'll never use, or the extra photographs from your 1988 (or 2006!) trip to Yosemite that didn't make it into your photo album.

    We need samples that are dated and include the manufacturer's information. Even damaged materials are useful to us if they are stamped with a date and have the manufacturer's name or logo stamped on them.



    Have a look at this for more details...

    Last dated Dec 2006? That's a pretty old posting, I imagine they are up to their necks in submissions by now. Wonder if they're willing to trade old film/paper for old canvas, covered with oils, etc. Just a thought...

    Let's see, they won't give you a receipt for donation, they won't reimburse you for shipment and they restrict access to researchers and scientists; of whom I'll bet exactly none of us will fit that definition.

    Frankly, I am tired of these types of back-handed solicitations that come from very well heeled institutions.

    Let THEM eat cake...

    I understand Getty is a Bill Gates company. That alone would deter me from sending him anything (I'm that jealous of success).

    Huh?
    the Getty Centre in LA, linked to in the first post, is an art institute run on a multi billion dollar bequest left by oil man J Paul Getty.

    You are perhaps thinking of the quite separate stock photo business Getty Images which is a public company that was started by a Getty descendant. The other big stock photo company is Corbis & that is privately owned by Bill Gates.

    Ah, you are right. Sorry.

    Bill Gates is or was involved in Corbis, that may be the confusion.
