Few years ago, i've started Costică Acsinte Archive — digitizing the glass plates and paper photos of a romanian photographer. More than 9.000 glass plates digitized and returned to the public (42.4M views only on Flickr).



Since then i've digitized other photographic archives too (the most important one being the 3.000 item from Romanian National Technical Museum Dimitrie Leonida).

Now i want to turn this hobby of mine to a full time “job”. I have lots of photographic material to work on and i want to publish it in full resolution. For this to happen, i need your support.

How can you help?

Well, i've created several tiers:
  • Supporter — $3 (or more :D), your commitment to this project will be acknowledged on our website and you have my deepest thanks!  Together we'll uncover many photographic wonders!
  • Coffee angel — I drink a ton of coffee! $10 will help me stay awake and work more hours, every day. Just joking, but i do drink coffee (and smoke). What it matters is that every month you'll get a #thankyou postcard from me, with the most interesting image i've scanned that month.
  • Scanner — if you like so much all these antique photos and really want to work beside me, here's your spot: $100. Besides my time, there are some spending involved in digitization: scanners brake, computers need updating from time to time, cloud storage costs money and so the cleaning products for films, glass plates etc. For this level you'll get a monthly report with all the images digitized (contactsheet style) plus the thank you post-card.
  • Mecenas — i don't know. This level requires purely willing to do good. That's why there are no perks attached.
