Protecting and Preserving All Life -- By Extending Human Vision

Photography Births a New World in All Directions

Photography gave birth to the human understanding of today.  Now, we can see to the center of the universe and to the smallest matter which comes together to create the space in which we live, breathe, think, and search for ever more accurate answers.

Arthur C. Pillsbury recognized the potentials of photography in all of its forms and set out to make these available to us.
