Press Photo History Project
The Press Photo History Project (PPHP) is recording the history of press photography industry in the UK – this is now starting to become worldwide particularly in the USA. I am collecting/covering detail and stories from freelance press photographers, photo agency history – staff, dates, equipment and most importantly the delivery of news photographs to the media. I’m after some help bringing all the information and research to life.
I have been running the PPHP for 10 years now as an off shoot of my main industry website https://photoarchivenews.com
• The PPHP has been recognised by the British Library as a useful resource.
• The PPHP regular helps academics and authors researching the press photography industry and intends to provide press photography history resources for schools.
• The PPHP answers copyright enquires and re-connects photographers and ex-photo agency staff weekly.
• The PPHP is able to reach a vast photo industry knowledge base worldwide through commercial photo agencies, private photo collectors, working and retired press photographers and the industry in general.
• The PPHP has become the go-to resource for everything to do with the history of press photography
