History of Fundamental Photographs
Fundamental, a studio, as well as a stock source and an association of a few impassioned photographers, started with the images of George Resch. Our goal is to make science photographs- whether of a rusty nail or Newton's laws or a chemical reaction- that are as vivid, elegant and honest as love, research and the nature of photography permit.
Fundamental Photographs' collection comprises over 45,000 photographs shot digitally or converted to digital from original color transparencies, 35mm, 6x7, 4x5, and b/w originals.
