In the frame of the event, the project “Europeana Photography” (European Ancient Photographic Vintage Repositories of Digitized Pictures of Historic Quality) has been represented by Dr. Antonella Fresa of Promoter Srl. (Download the presentation here) EuropeanaPhotography is a digitisation project co-funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the University of Leuven. The project plays a key role in ensuring that digital content related to ancient photography is accessible in Europeana. In fact, Europeana has an impressive mass of images mostly representing cultural objects while photographic images, the early ones in particular, are underrepresented. Europeana Photography will fill this gap by providing photographic masterpieces from 1839 – with the first example of images from Fox Talbot and Daguerre – to the beginning of the Second World War (1939).
