In my work as an archivist I handle photo's everyday. I'm photo archivist. My main work is to make our big photo collection avalible on the internet, in a big database for you to browse.
It makes me happy, when I by chance, on Saturday evening saw the beginning of a fantastic BBC-series, about the french banker Albert Kahn and his amazing photo archive. The Wonderful World Of Albert Kahn. I was stunned to see these amazing photographs taken between 1908-1930, with scenes from over 50 countries, in colour! For those of you interested in photo's and can see Swedish televion and has the Kunskapskanalen, you can see the first episode again Friday 25, at 7 pm and the second episode at Saturday 26, at 10 pm (really bad hours both days, but you can always record it and see it later).
