We do the rest: an inherited project with photographic treasures stored for decades


"We Do the Rest" is a research project by photographer Mark Schwartz, who started it in 1977. Schwartz was completing a Master's degree in photography when, inspired by Kodak's 1888 motto "You Press the Button, We Do the Rest", sent Diana cameras to more than 100 important photographers of the time, some of whom were Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Emmet Gowin, Robert Heineken and Larry Fink, to return the reel for processing. The project was never published by Schwartz but, after his death in 2014, his daughter Sophie has recuperated his work.
