We were contacted by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. about a project they have launched to document the history of rock and roll as seen through the eyes of music fans:
We’re reaching out to the general public to go through their attics, basements, boxes, drawers, digital cameras, photo albums, cell phones, cloud, photo upload sites, and computer hard drives for pictures that show the greatest moments in the history of rock ’n’ roll. The Smithsonian has created this site and plans to publish a book that will illustrate rock ’n’ roll as it has never been seen before with photos sent in by YOU. We want rock ’n’ roll as seen through your eyes: at clubs, concerts, festivals, and beyond. Start sending in your rock snapshots now!
As the Smithsonian representative told us, “We’ve noticed we’re seriously lacking on pictures of A-ha, and thought you and your fan base could help get some awesome shots of A-ha.”
We’ve seen some amazing photos from the fans over the course of a-ha tours since the site launched in 2000, so we know you must have some great shots in your archives! The deadline to submit your photos is December 1, 2016.
If you would like to participate in this project, be sure to read all the Rules and FAQs, and contact the Smithsonian directly with any questions. Please note that the band and a-ha.com are not at all involved with this project and your participation is at your own discretion.
