The news that Pixifoto has now been placed into voluntary administration was sad news for the imaging industry and for the 300 people that they employed. Since 1971 they have been taking portraits of Australian families at their local shopping centre and at an affordable price.
On a personal note, in 1972 I was working at the professional colour lab where all the photo finishing was being done for this exciting new project. It was thought of as bold new initiative in the photographic industry, one that had achieved great success in the US.
It is a reminder of how important our family photos are to us all now, and in the future.
