'Back to Eden' - Vintage naturist and FKK photo gallery
« on: October 20, 2009, 02:24:22 pm »
I recently found a site that is an archive of hundreds of vintage naturist photographs:

http://backtoeden.tumblr.com/archive

Here's what the site owner says about the content:
Quote
The images posted on this blog were sent to me after I advertised for vintage naturist photographs for a project I was working on. The anonymous collector made no claims to be the copyright owner but asked if I could make them freely available. Most of the images appear to be scanned from issues of Helios magazine published in the 50’s and 60’s in Germany as well as some from unidentified American magazines.

As of today, the site is still being maintained, with new photographs added every few days and weeks. 






It would be neat to move all of these photos into IYNO's "The Classics!" image gallery for safekeeping.  This gallery is a great exhibition of naturism's positive and happy heritage.  It is important for us to preserve that heritage!

Sounds like a good idea and reason, I.  I think you should do that and keep in mind the theme is always continuity, youth, and positive nature. 

Thanks for offering!

It appears that Back To Eden has stopped adding new content as of February 15, 2010.

Maybe you could scan the magazines and share them online?  May be a good way to preserve the content!

I like all this aesthetic pictures, too. I think it gives credit to the people on the pictures. Today they're old and maybe dead but their youth/May remains on pictures.

Yes, I think they would be an appropriate addition.  I'd like to start adding them once/if granted gallery access. 

There are a lot of photos on that site... maybe a group effort would work best!    :564

Well, if you need help let me know
You can always start with adding the ones you like, so they don't get posted twice, then i or another staff member can approve them for you

Hi there!  Sounds like a plan but the only reason you havent reached gallery access, is umm....44 posts in 1.5 years.... :65

Seriously, Mowgli can give you access if you wish.  Your a good guy.

Haha, I know.  I read a lot of the content and have been a long-time N vet -- I just don't contribute unless I feel I've got something useful to write (chalk it up to shyness...).  Maybe I'll have more useful thoughts soon!    :4345

I just re-read what you wrote, Chado, and the way you wrote that just made me laugh.  Not quite sure why, though!

The pictures are pretty cool!  Some of them could have been taken any time, but others are quite dated with the hair styles and makeup.

Is anyone familiar with that ring tossing game that appears in so many shots?

Maybe you have a lively immagination. Imagine how grandfather and grandmother surf the web with their iPad. Suddenly they find their pictures from good old times in our galery...  :4345 :786
