John Hinde Collection


Project and social media manager / website / photo restoration


Michelle Abadie built and designed www.johnhindecollection in 2010, which is the most comprehensive online archive of classic John Hinde postcards from the 1960s and 1970s. She also designed and printed some business cards to promote the website.


A year later, together with photographer Marcus Davies, they started to scan and digitally restore the first batch of transparencies from John Hinde Ltd. Over the last seven years they have cleaned and restored over 89 original John Hinde transparencies. The edition prints were launched at Vintage Festival July 2011 at the Royal Festival Hall, South Bank in London and since then they have been exhibited worldwide and have had extensive press coverage.


As well as the extensive digital photo restoration done on the John Hinde original prints, Michelle has an interest in old photographs, and photo management and restoration has become a regular part of her work.
