The photo library PYMCA is now part of a charity initiative called Youth Club. For image buyers it’s just a name change, Youth Club sits on the PYMCA url.
They say: The PYMCA team is proud to announce an exciting fundamental change as the PYMCA Archive merges with YOUTH CLUB – a non profit organisation working to encapsulate and showcase Youth Heritage in the UK.
Jon Swinstead, the energetic owner at PYMCA, told PAN this week: “I’ve broken down my business into two bits as it became obvious that commercial pressures were pulling me away from my core archiving mission. So youth club is a charity I’ve set up to preserve and share Youth Cultural heritage. This will focus on the core content preservation and education and events whilst allowing licensing, rights and other commercial exploitation of the content to remain removed enough to avoid influence but close enough to still benefit the charity.”
