    Amazing collection of glassplates - Costică Acsinte

    I found this treasure trove and couldn't see it was posted on LFPF (maybe I fumbled the search)

    Costică Acsinte (sometimes spelled Axinte) was a romanian war photographer who, after discharg, opened a studio in Slobozia, IL.

    This is a project about digitizing Acsinte's glass plate negatives, supported by Asociația Culturală Atelierele Albe and Muzeul Județean Ialomița.

    Interesting,and it's all disappearing, sad

    From Time Magazine,

    "Costica Acsinte was a Romanian army photographer during World War I who, following his discharge, opened a small commercial studio in Slobozia, about 80 miles east of Bucharest. For two decades after the war, he was likely the only professional photographer in the county, and by the time of his death in 1984, he had built an archive of epic, anthropological scope containing upwards of 5,000 glass-plate negatives and several hundred prints."
