Arxiu fotogràfic de la revista Life

life_cover_moon

Google i la revista Life han posat a l’abast de tothom un gran arxiu fotogràfic que en els propers mesos arribarà a la xifra de més de 10 milions d’imatges. Increïble. Una immensa història gràfica que arrenca al 1750 i arriba als nostres dies. La qualitat de les imatges digitalitzades és impressionant. La notícia s’ha fet pública a través del blog oficial de Google:

We’re excited to announce the availability of never-before-seen images from the LIFE photo archive. This effort to bring offline images online was inspired by our mission to organize all the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. This collection of newly-digitized images includes photos and etchings produced and owned by LIFE dating all the way back to the 1750s.

Only a very small percentage of these images have ever been published. The rest have been sitting in dusty archives in the form of negatives, slides, glass plates, etchings, and prints. We’re digitizing them so that everyone can easily experience these fascinating moments in time. Today about 20 percent of the collection is online; during the next few months, we will be adding the entire LIFE archive — about 10 million photos.
