Black & white photography enthusiasts can now share their experiences and images with fellow photographers worldwide using a MySpace presence launched by Ilford Photo.

?The launch of our MySpace page is a watershed moment for Ilford Photo,? said an Ilford Photo UK spokesman.

?We will be able to engage directly with hundreds, possibly thousands of photographers worldwide, united in their love and passion for black & white photography.?

He added: ?We are committed to creating a bright future for traditional black & white photography, and the MySpace page shows that the digital age has not eclipsed traditional photography ? it is genuinely facilitating it, helping to establish a bright future for black & white.?

The MySpace page is designed to run in tandem with Ilford Photo?s existing website.

Features include an online slideshow of images, a forum where visitors can post comments, as well as information about new products, events, exhibitions and details of UK masterclasses.

Formed in 1879 ? and based in Cheshire – Ilford became famous for its film, paper and darkroom chemicals.
