Saved from oblivion
An art photographer Maja Stošić donated to Wikimedia Commons 33 remarkable photos of traditional craftsmen, from her author's collection Saved from oblivion. The photos were taken over a period of a year and a half, when Maja toured the villages and towns of Serbia looking for the remaining artists of traditional crafts.
Maja Stosic is a member of the Photo Association of Serbia and an award-winning author. She won a Certificate of Appreciation at this year's competition Wiki Loves Earth - Serbia for the image of the frozen waterfall. A few months later, we contact her with a proposal for releasing entire collection “Saved from oblivion” for Wiki projects.
She said: "... Education is the main objective of this collection, so the world's largest knowledge base - Wikipedia is a natural place for these photos".
Editors of the Serbian Wikipedia have already started to illustrate articles about the old crafts with these photographs, and we believe it will be useful for Wikipedias in other languages.
The interview with Maja can be read at Wikimedia Serbia’s blog (in serbian language).
