Collections and archives

We are building a gallery of images to showcase the richness of photographic heritage. The gallery will allow you to browse over 100 years of photography from all over Europe, from the very beginning of the invention of photography (normally considered in 1839 when Louis Daguerre invented the daguerreotype) to the first half of the 20th century.

The gallery will include selected images from the members of PHOTOCONSORTIUM: starting with the discovered treasures of over 450.000 images digitized in 2014 for the EU Co-funded project Europeanaphotography, and including other collections added along the way during the travelling exhibition All Our Yesterdays.

The gallery is therefore an access point to:

  • the images digitized during Europeanaphotography
  • additional images provided by PHOTOCONSORTIUM members
  • crowd-sourced images, collected and digitized in the collecting days organized during the exhibitions of All Our Yesterdays
