The STARS digital archive is built on the contribution of many different people who have shared with us their photos. We are always looking to expand this digital archive.
Please note that if you decide to share your photos with the STARS archive, we will commit ourselves in writing to make no commercial use of your photos. THE PURPOSE OF THIS ARCHIVE IS ONLY FOR RESEARCH.
If you own one, two, ten, two hundred, three thousand or more prints and negatives of family portraits produced by Tamil studios, please let us know! It can be family photos, photos you collected in a shop, photos you found… Any old black and white photo is of interest for us.
We will accordingly digitise your collection, return an archival quality digital file of your photos and sign an authorization letter which binds us to a non-commercial use of your photos.
