Contributions & Usage Terms

Seeking contributors

Four Corners would like to offer researchers the most complete version of the digital archive, to reinstate any material that has been redacted wherever possible, and to include relevant material currently missing from our archive. 

We have endeavoured to obtain copyright permission from all Camerawork magazine, Half Moon Photography Workshop and Four Corners’ contributors, but we ask that anyone who has written, photographed or created any content for any of the above to contact us and confirm whether they give permission for their work to be made available on the site by emailing:

If any contributor or a third party objects to the inclusion of their work now or at any point in the future, or wishes to make their content live but with restrictions, we can anonymise, make alterations or remove the material. In this event, please contact:

The online Camerawork magazine material is made available as low resolution scanned pages, and images, articles and other materials cannot be downloaded individually.

Four Corners is very grateful to the many contributors who have given permission for their material to be made available for this project.
