Different organizations and foundations which take the war pictures from their photographers claim that they belong to their organizations. They even don’t let the photographers to access their own photos, quoted by Majid Doukhtehchizadeh, the war photographer as reporting “Shahed cultural Information webSit. He added: “It is the basic right of a war photographer to access his own photos. That is while different organizations exclusively keep their photos and consider them as their own properties. And meanwhile the photographers cannot access their own photos.”? Such organizations have ignored the fact that they can do that merely by giving the copy right to the photographer. On the other hand I think the main obstacle to access the photos is lack of programming and coordinating. It is not done by intention by the officials. The problem is that a particular person or organization is not assigned to be in charge of the issue. The archive is the other problem which causes the problem, he continued. He further added: “Officials should be aware of the fact that having no access to photos –for any reason- has caused problems for organizing war photos. It disappoints the photographers too. Explaining about the idea of establishing “War Museum”? in order to organize war photos, “Doukhtehchizadeh”? said: Officials of the museum of “Sacred Defense”? have recently commenced good activities. I hope with the officials’ contribution compensates the shortages in past years. It is a good act in condition that it is not a periodical action and looks at the future. In addition, the programmed and technical facilities and all that is suitable for a war photo museum should be obtained. As for the necessity of establishing such a complex he said: All war equipments are destroyed and destructions in war regions become reconstructed little by little after every war. And documents are the things remain in history. And photos are a part of war documents in every country. Hence, the necessity of keeping war photos is brought up. In addition to war photos, it is essential to keep the documentary films remained from the war. Because keeping such documentary films and photos will help the cultural activities of the youth, researchers and sociologists. By the way it helps to enrich the museum of the “Sacred Defense”?. As for the characteristics of such a museum, “Doukhtehchizadeh”? concluded: “An expert view is needed for establishing the war museum. It should not be unidimentional. The photos in such a museum should be various and classified and not repeated. It should show different views about the issue. The addressees should be attracted. The officials of the museum should be in contact with the officials of similar museums all over the world. And they should get help from their technical achievements to improve the quality of the museum.”?
