I reviewed the thread about Brooks Jensens audioblog "A Rose is A Rose," and found this within the thread...


"Well, a not for profit association could be formed by someone with enough time to make it happen. The founding members would define a charter, perhaps collaborate together and with a community (APUG seems like a good starter community to me) to define key photographic processes."

For those interested, along about 1999 a group of people setup "FoundView.org" which was dedicated to the certification of straight unmanipulated photographs. It went defunct in 2001 for lack of interest. However, there is another site with the same sort of "purity of photography" goals.

For those of you who think this sort of thing is important, I suggest you go to Trust Image
