Happy New Year!

New Year is both a time for looking forward and for looking back.

We are looking forward to seeing new artists work - look out for next newsletter which will be packed full of new talents - new articles and interesting discussions on the forum in the new year.

We are also looking back. Way back. This issue is dedicated to all the historians out there. Our main focus is usually art produced now, technology applied to this age and where we're going next, so here is some reflection for you all.

History of Photographic Words and Slogans - Do you know where the word 'photography' came from? Find out and contribute with your five pence, cents or yens worth.

Alternative Processes history - An ongoing timeline that we are inviting any historians with the fact in their fingers to key them down and send them too us.

And, last but not least, the 'Forgotten' processes, like Catalisotype, Spherotypes and Woodburytypes. Know of any more curios ones? Are you actually working in any of these processes? Let us know!

And of course, some new news too, like the first new talented artists joining us in 2005:


Colin Irwin
