The billpeckham.com Dialysis Photo Archive is under a Creative Commons License. The idea for a photo archive occurred to me as I attended the funeral for Dr. Joseph Eschbach a pioneer in CKD anemia management and home hemodialysis. The early pioneers of dialysis are aging and passing; with them many historic photos will be lost. I want to preserve the photographic history of dialysis. And there is a second problem this photo archive will address.
Right now it is typically illegal to pull a photo off a website and use it in a PowerPoint or on your own website. Under a creative commons license anyone can use the photo - a student doing a school report, someone creating a website or someone creating a PowerPoint. You just have to credit the source www.billpeckham.com.
My selection criteria will be any photo I think could be helpful to illustrate some aspect of dialysis. I will focus on photos of machines and processes related to dialysis, particularly photos of a historic nature. I will try my best to follow the requirements of a Creative Commons license, if you have expertise in this area I welcome help.
