Why those involved with photography love Luminous-Lint
"Luminous-Lint is unparalleled in its depth and quality of photo-historical content for photography curators, artists and photo-aficionados the world over."
"Simply the most complete online source for information about the history of photography."
Goethe was too busy to write something...
GRAHAM HOWE CEO and owner, Curatorial Assistance, Pasadena
ROBERT HIRSCH Photo-historian, photographer and author of numerous books on photography
"I like going back to Luminous-Lint because: it is an extremely well written and well documented site incorporating many photo collections, and highlighting special clusters within the field."
"Luminous-Lint is, in my experience, the most comprehensive history of photography resource on the internet, far surpassing what you‘d find in any one book. The level of detail in the research is astounding. I have yet to find a similar site that matches it."
ELS BARENTS Director, Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie
KARL BADEN Boston College
"I refer to Luminous-Lint frequently to get a better and deeper visual understanding of photographic history; to look for new work and ideas. I also refer students - it is simply the most comprehensive and accessible database of its kind."
"I adore Luminous Lint because it is a reliable source for accurate information on subjects both mainstream and quirky in the world of photography. Also because it organizes knowledge in a non-linear fashion which encourages creative, out-of-the-box thinking."
NEIL FOLBERG Photographer and owner, Vision Gallery, Jerusalem, Israel

Saving time and improving your knowledge with Luminous-Lint
Are you a Curator?
Do you work in Education?
Is Photohistory what you love?
Luminous-Lint brings together photographs from thousands of public and private collections assisting in exhibition planning. We put people in contact who need to know each other.
Whether planning a book, research article or a lecture Luminous-Lint brings together significant photographs and provides the lesser-known but connected ones. It encourages visual exploration and analysis
No matter what theme a photohistorian is interested in Luminous-Lint provides texts, rare photographs, analysis and innovative ways of approaching the material
Is Collecting a passion?
Are your Studies opening your mind?
Can you improve your Photography?
For collectors who are passionate about photography we collaborate to show their collections and integrate their discoveries into the global histories of photography. From vernacular photography to film envelopes we have it all.
Textbooks are expensive and can not possibly include the range of examples necessary to gain a thorough understanding of a topic. Luminous-Lint goes deeper frequently including all the illustrations from significant series accompanied by texts, footnotes and references.
Luminous-Lint helps photographers place their own work with the broader historical context. It encourages the open-minded to examine their own originality and improve their work.
Themes, or genres, are at the core of Luminous-Lint as they bring together photographs, texts, footnotes, reading lists for further research, photographers worth investigating, online exhibitions and visual indexes to build increasingly coherent histories. These evolve everyday as fellow enthusiasts contribute new images and insights.
Many confusing terms are used within Photohistory as a shorthand to explain time periods, stylistic choices in subject matter and compositions and groupings of photographers based on significant exhibitions. Naturalism, Surrealism, New Topographics, Orientalism and many other styles and movements are explained with examples.
Fragments are the building blocks used to construct Themes. They are constantly under change as new images and information arrive in. Nothing is fixed and it is part of the core philosophy of Luminous-Lint that knowledge evolves. Hundreds of changes happen every day to these Fragments.
If you need to know what happened on a specific day or month of the year the Calendars are a useful guide. They highlight key events and the births and deaths of photographers.
