Europeana Photography

Uit het persbericht:

"2017 Europeana and PHOTOCONSORTIUM are launching Europeana Photography, an online collection bringing together and sharing a vast archive of historical images. Featuring early photography from some of Europe’s finest historical collections, Europeana Photography is the latest thematic collection to be published on Europeana Collections, joining Europeana Art, Europeana Music and Europeana Fashion.

Photographic treasures
Europeana Photography presents images from the first 100 years of photography, sourced from photographic archives, agencies and museum collections across Europe. Photography enthusiasts, students and academics are invited to explore over 2 million historical images from more than 50 institutions across 34 countries, including photographs by pioneers like Julia Margaret Cameron, Eadweard Muybridge and Louis Daguerre.

Online Exhibitions
Europeana Photography will be supported by compelling blog posts, themed galleries and online exhibitions. The opening exhibition, Industrial Photography in the Machine Age, is part of a series, The Pleasure of Plenty, which focuses on opulent and visually rich vintage photography. Future exhibitions on specific themes will be released regularly, telling enticing stories with stunning images, allowing people to explore distant eras and locations, and better appreciate the value of their European, national and local cultural heritage.

Making heritage photography collections available on Europeana encourages both the general public and professionals to discover the images and to use them in their own projects as a fifth of the photos are openly licensed. It is also an opportunity for archives from across Europe to promote their collections on an international platform. Among the public and private archives whose collections are included in Europeana Photography are: the world's oldest photographic agency, Fratelli Alinari (Italy), TopFoto (UK), Parisienne de Photographie (France), Ajuntament de Girona/CRDI and GenCat, (Catalunya Spain), United Archives, (Germany), KU Leuven and KIK-IRPA (Belgium); Polfoto and Arbejdermuseet (Denmark), the National Board of Antiquities (Finland), the Israel Museum (Israel), and NALIS (Bulgaria)."
