June 3, 2014: The Amsterdam Photo Club is proud to start a new collaboration with Rockarchive Amsterdam (http://www.rockarchive.nl/). Giving the opportunity for our members to have their photography printed and sold as art pieces to collectors and tourists passing by.
How to participate
The photo must clearly depict Amsterdam. Preferably photographed in a way normal tourists would not think of.
The Amsterdam Photo Club and Rockarchive Amsterdam will pick the 3 favorite photos to be featured and sold in the store. The photos will be printed by the gallery on hahnemuhle fine art paper in black & white. For every sale, a profit will be paid to the photographer.

Following in the footsteps of the Magnum picture collective and inspired by the digital revolution, photographer Jill Furmanovsky registered a website called rockarchive.com in 1998. The idea behind it was to make her work, and that of other rock photographers and visual artists, more accessible to fans and collectors.
To launch the project, Jill selected 30 classic black and white images of major rock artists from her 30 year archive, to make into an edition of 30 darkroom prints. Edition 30/30/30 as it became known, was the first collection for an innovative and original project that now publishes more than 750 images by 60 photographers and art-directors.
The company’s philosophy is to accord recognition to the art of rock photography and to help maintain the rights of its practitioners. Rockarchive promotes lesser-known work by high profile photographers and the work of up and coming photographers.
