Looking for photos of old Cyprus

Postby changa » Sat Mar 24, 2012 11:19 am

Hi, I'm a digital artist and looking for photos from your archives which represent old Cyprus - indoor/outdoor/landscapes and street scenes with people, people at work e.t.c.
I'm going to make video installation recreating 3D space from these photos. I need 300 dpi or better scans, 1920 - 1980 years with comments (place, date, event). Please PM me if you are ready to share.

Nobody? Come on, open up your old photo albums and share your memorable pictures with others! Finally it should be like one here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XNQrjL6J8Q (my Grands and Mom).

Hi Changa... Welcome to CF.

Problem, we had '000s of such photos but a year or so ago our image hosting changed and they've gooooooone!

Best bet is a few CY FB Pages. Will post a few links for you tonight.

The problem is that old photos need to be scanned to be digitized and that is quite a bit of work! Not many people like to work for nothing. Maybe you should offer some incentives ;)

Thanks for the links, but I need better quality/size.

You can't imagine how much work is to compose those 6 seconds video! Old time and people are gone, the only thing we can do is to recall them.
