Danita Delimont Royalty Free Collection 2018
New RF images from the travel, wildlife and footage specialist library, with many outstanding pictures for-budget conscious buyers.
The world of stock photography continues to evolve and change in many ways. Images that were once only considered for Rights Managed licences are now being absorbed into Royalty Free collections. It’s taken years for professional photographers to come to terms with the changes in the licencing fees. With a glut of images everywhere, many taken by hobbyists rather than professionals, there is a plethora of RF images coming into the market place that never existed before the advent of high-end digital cameras that anyone can now buy!
That said, the attention that professional photographers take with their research, timing of the light and seasons, patience in watching the wildlife and anticipating their behavior hasn’t changed. Few “Hobbyists” or “Serious Amateurs” take the time to create these kinds of outstanding images.
DanitaDelimont.com have managed to convince their professional shooters to allow them to offer a mix of their images now in both the Royalty Free and Rights Managed collections. This is a great thing for clients looking or confined to using only RF images due to budgets or relicencing restrictions. They can now find outstanding RF images from their professionals on the DanitaDelimont.com site.

Gassed Returns to Imperial War Museum
Gassed by John Singer-Sargent is an iconic painting in IWM’s art collection. It has returned to the UK after an international tour to be displayed at IWM North as part of Lest We Forget?, an exhibition that includes several other paintings commissioned by the British government in 1918.
The subject of the exhibition is the human cost of war and how damaging it is to society. On display are several iconic paintings commissioned by the British government in 1918 from some of the nation’s most prominent war artists intended for a First World War memorial gallery – the Hall of Remembrance – which was never built.
Ten works from this memorial are united including renowned paintings by Paul Nash, Stanley Spencer, Wyndham Lewis and John Singer Sargent, whose painting Gassed returns home from its two-year international tour.
Until 24th February 2019

Images of Abandoned Russia
Across the vastness of Russia—the world’s largest country, at some 6.6 million square miles—and over the span of its long history, countless houses, factories, churches, villages, military bases, and other structures have been built and then left behind: imperial-era palaces, log cabins of pioneers in the Far East, Christian cathedrals, massive Soviet blocks of concrete, speculative-mining camps, and more. For years now, photographers have traveled across Russia finding and photographing these intriguing ghost towns, empty Soviet factories, toppling houses, and crumbling chapels.
