Open Inquiries
The time is past for self-appointed elites to dictate what are facts.  Facts are the history which makes it possible for us to direct our lives, invest time, and understand the world around us.  Therefore, to intentionally rearrange the facts is a violation, stealing from us what is essential.  Here we provide our ongoing Inquiries.  Sign up to receive IMAGE to receive updates.   

It started with the Norsigian Negatives.  In 2000 Rick Norsigian of Fresno, California, purchased for $45, an old box containing 61 - 65 glass negatives at a garage sale.   
     In 2010 the negatives were announced to be the work of Ansel Adams.  This claim was challenged by the Adams heirs, among others. The Ansel Adams heirs sued Norsigian.  
     On March 15, 2011 the law suit was settled. An inquiry was then ongoing at this site, interrupted, and leaving many Open Questions which need answering.
