Pierce Rafferty

Pierce Rafferty co-founded his own archive, Petrified Films, Inc. in 1985, after discovering the joys of film and photo archives while doing research for THE ATOMIC CAFE. In conjunction with Prelinger Associates, both companies became known world wide as a source for unique and often quirky archival stock footage and photos. Petrified’s collection grew over the next decade to include the Warner Brothers Stock Footage Library (pre-1951) and the Columbia Pictures Stock Footage Library (pre-1965). Rafferty sold the motion picture division of the archives in 1994 to The Image Bank, Inc. Rafferty currently resides in Brooklyn, NY and continues to work on history-based projects of his own design.
