Las Vegas, NV—Smugmug released a film short that follows Paolo Cascio’s journey as he documented the 75th anniversary events of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. December 7, 2016 marked the diamond anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack as well as the destruction of the USS Arizona. The attack took the lives of 1,177 crewmembers. SmugMug is a popular a photo-sharing and storage site.
Every year, a commemoration takes place at the site to honor the unforgettable moment. It is a memorial to those who fell and also the few left who experienced the destruction firsthand. In addition, the 75th memorial marked a milestone in America’s history. The five sole survivors gathered to reflect and salute their fallen friends and crewmembers.
Renowned lifestyle and veteran photographer Paolo Cascio was exclusively invited to document the Pearl Harbor 75th memorial through his photography.
Cascio also was given access to interview one of the remaining survivors—all preserved in the SmugMug film.
In 2002, two passionate photographers decided to start SmugMug as a “safe, beautiful home for our photos.”
Passion became the father and son duo’s business model. Digital cameras began outselling film cameras by 2003. And within three years of launching, SmugMug became the trustee for the photos of 50,000 customers. The company now archives billions of photos.
“Today, we’re as passionately dedicated to people who invest time, energy, and love into their photos as we were when we started,” stated the founders. “We strive each day to make you look good and to help you improve your craft. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist, whether you’re branding your portfolio or documenting your life. As long as you care about photos, you’re in.” smugmug.com
