A collection of hidden & largely unpublished photographic negatives by Maja Blumenfeld that capture the faces, landscapes, architecture, & lifestyles of interwar Berlin & mid-twentieth-century Auckland, New Zealand.
The 1000+ archive of glass plate & Kodak negatives resurfaced in 2014 still in its original packaging with handwritten notes & Maja’s granddaughter, our own Roshannah Bagley, has spent the last 3 years researching the background stories of the images.
We’re working closely with her to bring these stories to life & share them with the public for the very first time.
A digital platform that makes it easy for authors of all levels to publish their stories & have them discovered by the most appreciative audiences while helping readers easily discover stories they’l love.
We’re supporting Nathan Reed to grow the existing Short Stories platform into an engaged community of budding, emerging & established writers while building awareness around the platform with new readers – with a focus on encouraging children’s literacy.
