I'm trying to find ways to help a friend of mine whom have a pretty large collection of cameras (over 300 pieces) many of which are in good conditions and mostly still usable. The collection range is pretty wide. I'm waiting for more details of his collection from him.

Anyone knows where/ who I can approach about this?

My friend mentioned that he approached the Singapore Museum but they declined his donations of cameras. But I don't think he has any wish to donate to others now. Just want to help him showcase his collections.

Also trying to see the responds of photogs here... if there's this exhibition, would you attend? And if yes, would you pay to attend?

A lot depends on what these 300 cameras are.

Do they represent a history of photography equipments? Or what?

Can you give an idea of some more interesting items?

You need to show several items that were groundbreaking in the camera industry: like the first SLR, the first digital camera, the first camera with auto mirror return, etc......(I think Pentax will come out first in many aspects :)).

And one need to write the history of the individual camera models, to make it more educational to the public. Also, showcase the different formats, different film sizes, etc.......

Maybe, liase with the Science Center, but they are pretty off at Jurong.

may i ask what is the purpose of your friend to have a camera exhibition? For the sake of recognition (for the massive asset he has), fame, gain (from camera sales or entry fees), trade (with other collectors), educate (the young or old) or exhibit for the sake of exhibiting...

If you want to find a co-exhibitor or find a place/organisation to hold the exhibition, you will need to clearly sell them THE IDEA.

Why not he "donate" out to those passionate "photographer"? Maybe he could help them in a way?

If just want to "showcase" his stuff, i dun think he will have any problem since he can afford 300 over cameras.......
:sweat: ;)

He is still looking for musuems interested to accept his donations. He's a die hard camera enthus and is not looking at earning any returns from his cameras.

I'm in the process of collating more information from him and will post it up for discussion and suggestions from the experience members here.

He could perhaps approach an events planner and see if they could come up with a concept. Can recommend my friend who runs http://www.phish-comms.com/

She normally works with artists and various art collections but has experience in other types of exhibitions too.
