sb photos Posted April 15, 2019 Share Posted April 15, 2019 I'm curious of other contributors success with sales of archival images, how have they done? Obviously it would depend on the subjects. I have a huge number of mainly B&W 35mm negatives from the 1970's, 80's and 90's. For sometime I've been considering scanning a selection, but so far never had the free time. Extensive scanning is a should destroying job. I still have my Minolta Dimage 5400 optical scanner, it produces good images. What renewed my interest again was the fairly recent and untimely death of Magenta de Vine as she was known, as being in the news. She used to be local to me, and I remember photographing her with friends involved in the music industry outside a local music venue around 1970. Other pictures would be of National Front disturbances during election campaigns, one of a prominent NF organiser held over the bonnet of a ford escort by three police. That had press coverage and use in one magazine at the time. Another shows Peter Hain with child in baby buggy speaking to Michael Meacher at the memorial march in Southall a week after Blair Peach was clubbed down by the SPG. They looked so young then. Wether Alamy might be interested or not, I think I'll start looking through the negative files and segregating the interesting ones to form an opinion on what might be viable. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
