Early photography resources

The January 2009 issue of College & Research Libraries News contains a fantastic article, Uncapping the lens : the history of early photography by Ellen Bahr. (Write down the rest of the citation, since the ALA website is notorious for changing its links & the difficulty of navigating it: C&RL News, Jan. 2009, v.70, no.1, p. 32-35. This way, you can always borrow the article via interlibrary loan!)

The article contains a listing of photography sites of interest to anyone involved with any aspect of early photography--even including late 20th century photography processes. The print article is a little easier to scan than the online version; major sections include:

  • Overviews
  • Timelines
  • Overviews of photographic processes
  • Individual photographic processes
  • Materials and workshops
  • Podcasts
  • Discussion lists
  • Organizations
  • Preservation
  • Portals
  • Exhibition catalogs
  • Searchable image collections
  • Historians

Many thanks to my colleague, Keri Koehler, for passing this issue on to me.
