I have been asked to include one of my photographs of Southminster Operatic and Choral Society in a time capsule being placed in Southminster. What a wonderful thought that in many years time one of my photographs will be displayed as record of Southminster's history.
The print is of the Southminster Operatic and Choral Society's 2011 Christmas Concert. Unfortunately, compositionally not one of my best photographs, a by-product of being in the photograph at the back and triggering the shutter remotely.
I have printed this photograph using our pigment ink printer. This printer has an archival print permanence of 200 years according to Hewlett Packard and so this will be a nice test of this. It is a shame that I will probably not be about to see how well it does.
I often wonder what will happen to my photographs in years to come, now I know that at least one will survive for a good while.
