The Picture Resurrection Project is dedicated to the memory of the lineage of the Sufi Message as brought by Hazrat Inayat Khan. Our mission is to bring a living presence to each lovingly restored and custom printed photograph so that our past will live ever present in this moment and remain as a witness far into the future of our rich history in service to the Sufi Message of Love, Harmony, and Beauty.
The Picture Resurrection Project was so named by Pir-o-Murshid Hidayat Inayat-Khan when he and his wife, Murshida Aziza Inayat-Khan, were presented with impeccably restored and artistically custom printed reproductions of photographs of Hazrat Inayat Khan and Pirani Amina Begum. These reproductions brought a vivid life to these photographs. Pir-o-Murshid Hidayat exclaimed, "This is simply marvelous! These are better than the original photographs! How did you do this?"
From that moment on master restorer, archivist, and custom printer, Alim Greg Welch, has worked tirelessly to bring a select few photos back to life and luster. Over time the collection of restored photos will grow with the kind support of your patronage.
Alim Greg Welch, proprietor of Oak Tree Press, collaborates with Murshida Nuria Stephanie Sabato, representative for the International Sufi Movement, in the selection of photos presented to you through the Picture Resurrection Project.
The Picture Resurrection Project is dedicated to the restoration and fine print reproduction of archival photographs.
The Picture Resurrection Project produces one of a kind custom prints.
These are not mere photographic reproductions, these reproductions are works of art printed on the finest 100% cotton and acid free heavy weight paper.
Each print has been lovingly restored and printed through a special and rare printing process that produces a unique holographic print that possesses an incredible quality of depth and aliveness.
These restorative works of art bring a living presence to each photograph that represents our rich history in service to the Sufi Message of Love, Harmony, and Beauty.
