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."
Director, Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie
"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."

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.
ASTRACT to ZOOS - A listing of the Themes for you to browse.
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.
Each of the significant techniques used in early photography are discussed in detail with examples. There are also Visual Indexes bringing together photographs created by the more obscure techniques.
