Baseball’s Hall of Fame
Only Days before the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s 75th anniversary, Google has adopted the museum and its contents into the cultural institute founded in 2012. This means you can view the museum as if you were there in person, or simply look at high quality versions of the photographs in in a beautiful scrolling gallery. It shares the history as you would read in the museum with photographs dating back to 1886. This isn’t all that the cultural institute has to offer though. You can find monuments and cultural treasures from all over the world as well as paintings and artworks that have defined the compositional rules photographers use every day. Here are a a few samples from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in New York.
Looking at these photographs, it tells me even more that it’s our duty as photographers to take part in some part of the culture, or at least create one for ourselves. The photography community as a whole is a force to be reckoned with, and we choose how the current day will be remembered generations after. Even if photojournalism isn’t our specialty, there’s still some responsibility to record our lives. Use it as an excuse to start a personal project or two.
If you want to see more photographs, you can find the Baseball Hall of Fame in Google’s Cultural Institute, and check out some other art pieces while you’re there.
