About

HELP US SAVE THIS GREAT HISTORICAL HERITAGE

Paul Newman, Sean Connery, Sophia Loren, Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali, elephants going for a stroll on bridges and streets, glamorous women water skiing, bizarre inventions and extreme weather conditions - these are just a few of over 300,000 negatives stored in the Archive of the Cameraphoto photographic studio in Venice. These pictures, extraordinary examples of history and culture of the Lagoon city, have been collected over a period spanning more than fifty years

Vittorio Pavan, former apprentice and now owner of the Cameraphoto studio, is the custodian of this extraordinary photographic archive. Despite the continuous and painstaking care taken in the conservation of the negatives, they are rapidly and inevitably deteriorating, due to their chemical composition and nature of the plastic support. The purpose of this campaign is raise funds in order to digitize the originals and store a copy of the images in high resolution.

Press release for CameraPhoto Project is available in the following languages:

AIUTACI A SALVARE QUESTO GRANDE PATRIMONIO STORICO!

Paul Newman, Sean Connery, Sophia Loren, Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dalì, elefanti che se ne vanno a zonzo per ponti e calli, bellocce che praticano lo sci d’acqua, invenzioni improbabili e condizioni climatiche estreme... Negli oltre trecentomila negativi conservati nell’Archivio dello studio fotografico Cameraphoto di Venezia sono raccolte straordinarie immagini di più di cinquant’anni di storia e cultura della città Lagunare. Vittorio Pavan, ex apprendista e oggi titolare dello studio, è al tempo stesso memoria e custode di questo eccezionale archivio fotografico. Malgrado la cura che ha avuto nella manutenzione dei negativi, la loro particolare composizione chimica e la natura del supporto plastico ne stanno causando il rapido ed inevitabile deterioramento. Lo scopo di questa campagna è di raccogliere fondi per digitalizzare gli originali e ottenere copia delle immagini in alta risoluzione.
