Photography Database

Resource Type: 
Online Archives & Web Resources

Photography Database is a new implementation and major extension of work done by editors Andrew Eskind and Greg Drake while at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY beginning in the 1980s. It provides basic factual information about photographers, public photographic collections, commercial galleries, photographic exhibitions, and citations to the many published sources used to compile biographical, collections, and exhibitions data. The scope is international; the time frame is from the beginnings of photography to contemporary. It is continuously updated - actively tracking photographer's obituaries, new and expanding collections, exhibitions, galleries, reviews, catalogs, and reference literature.
