The world’s greatest photography agency was founded in 1947 by the world’s most talented photographers, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David Seymour (Chim), and George Rodger. Already distinguished for their documentary work, they set about to form a consortium that would protect their ownership of photographic negatives, give them editorial control over the use of their photographs, and free them from the tyranny of big magazine or agency editors who took advantage of reporters’ time as well as their negatives. In short, for the first time in the history of photography, the Magnum agency provided its members with their own copyright. The benefits of this we all enjoy to this day.

Founder Johnny Mobasher has created StreetPhotography.com to sit atop a solid foundation and is poised to expand and grow and prosper alongside the genre itself. Street photography has been a buzz for a couple of decades now. Much of its popularity, as with photography more generally, can be traced back to the early days of consumer-based digital photography. Indeed, the iPhone 3G – a landmark device – enabled millions and millions of people to claim the title of photographer. No longer do we buy mobile phones, we buy cameras – cameras that can, incidentally, place calls! All of this converged to give birth to millions of new “street photographers”.

Tom Kowach ended up becoming an engineer working in the California aerospace industry. He loved camera design and computers. In 1996 with the wave of the internet revolution, Tom began to play with web site design and began developing a few sites for himself and a few friends. The Historic Camera site started in February of 2002 to enhance his hobby of camera collecting.

The site includes three main areas of research: camera information, camera company history and biographies of photographers and important people of photography.

A useful supplier (and buyer) of vintage and classic cameras, particularly 35mm. According to their website “With over 25 years in the photographic industry we can offer the highest quality equipment and a service second to none”. Having never used them I can’t recommend or otherwise, but their prices seem reasonable, condition is described as a percentage.
