Re: alt-photo anniversary in 2009


I think that's a great idea.

I'm a young pup regards the list, I joined late 2004 and lurked for a while.

Maybe we could set up a flickr type gallery. Maybe willing list members
could put up one image and a short bio. It would be good to see what work
list members are creating and would be good promotion for alt photography. I
would be happy to administer it.

That's really neat - thanks Greg.
I think I joined in 1995 or 1996 - I do remember that unsw email address
(University of New South Wales - which is in Sydney, Australia).
How can we celebrate?

From the nostalgia department (after all I think we all have one):

How old am I? How long has it been. How shall we celebrate?

Subject: New list

alt-photo-process is a mailing list for the discussion of
alternative photographic processes. Alternative photographic
processes traditionally have been those that do not use the main
stream silver gelatin process, ie the printing paper that you
buy at the photo shop. Gum Bichromate, Platinum, Carbon Dye
Transfer, Cyanotype, Photogravure, Kallitype, Vandyke Brown,
Color Xerox, are some processes that are currently thought of as
alternative processes.

The group should be free to talk on any unconventional
photographic process or modification to the standard silver
gelatin process. Photographers that embark on alternative
processes usually have a "Do It Yourself" attitude. This
discussion group caters to that interest.

If you wish to join this mailing list, send the message


where "Your Name" is your preferred name, to the list processor
at listproc@vast.unsw.edu.au, and it will subscribe you and send
you further information on the group (like how to post messages
and use the listproc).
