The Where’s Eric! Team has been busy adding all the "in concert" photographs sent in by fans in recent weeks with almost 100 new images added to the Eric Clapton Photo Gallery. And, there are still more to add! Three new photo galleries dedicated to Memorabilia & Promotional Items, Book & Magazine Covers, and Guitars, Amps & Stage Equipment have also been launched. To make them more comprehensive, the Where’s Eric! Team needs your help. Submit your original photographs of EC’s guitars, amplifiers and other on-stage equipment or photographs or scans of promotional items, memorabilia, book covers and magazine covers to [email protected]. Even photographs of EC’s guitars and memorabilia that are on public display are helpful. Paper items, book and magazine covers and photographic prints should be scanned at a minimum of 200 DPI. Digital photographs of memorabilia should be high-resolution and be on a light coloured neutral background if possible; image files 500K and up preferred. Items should be photographed individually, not grouped together. Sending the original, unedited scan or photo is best. Be sure to include a description of the item along with your name so you can be credited.
Where’s Eric! is an independent group staffed entirely by a small number of fan-volunteers. To keep the photo galleries growing, the assistance of our fellow fans all over the world is needed. Even if you scan or send a photograph of one item from your Clapton collection, it is greatly appreciated. After all, WE! can’t do it without YOU! Check out the galleries first to see what is already included.
About the Where’s Eric! Eric Clapton Photo Gallery
In September 2010, the Where’s Eric! Eric Clapton Photo Gallery was launched with 1200 images from the 1960s to the present day. Since then, more than 700 more pictures and three new gallery categories have been added. In addition to fans’ "in concert" photographs categorized by decade, there are individual galleries of memorabilia, book and magazine covers, guitars and amplifiers, picture sleeves, posters and advertisements, concert tickets, programmes, VIP and crew passes, as well as galleries devoted solely to the Clapton / Winwood Concerts, the 2005 Cream Reunion, the three Crossroads Guitar Festivals and pictures of who reads Where’s Eric! Magazine.
