An ongoing project to scan the contents of all copies of Creative Camera Magazine from the time it adopted that name until it changed into DPICT.
Why is this being done?
All 358 copies of Creative Camera, from its launch as Camera Owner in 1964 to its eventually demise under the DPICT title in 2001, are an invaluable resource encompassing contemporary and historical photography in the latter part of the 20th century.
The magazine produced just one printed index of photographers’ names during its lifetime and that only covered the early years (see below), there is no one index that covers the entire resource.
The aim of this project is to create a searchable repository of the entire publication, with the ability to locate the actual issues which include specific photographers or other references.
To have searchable and retrievable scans of the whole contents is beyond the resources available at the moment, but copies of entire articles are available by special request, at a reasonable charge.
Send requests via the contact form.
As new sets are scanned and indexed they will be added here.
