Gamma may be out of picture

July 29, 2009|Reuters

French photo agency Gamma, which rose to fame documenting the May 1968 uprising in Paris and the Vietnam War, said Tuesday its survival was in doubt, the latest victim of a crisis hurting traditional media.

Founded in 1966, Gamma spearheaded a golden generation of French photo-journalists whose prize-winning images of world events were showcased on the front pages of influential magazine Paris Match and newspapers around the globe.

The managers of Eyedea, a bigger photo publishing group that now owns Gamma, told staff Tuesday that the division could no longer pay its bills.
