Artstor will collaborate with the George Eastman House to add approximately 13,000 images to the Artstor digital library. The world’s oldest museum of photography is currently represented in Artstor by 4,875 examples of photographs, from early daguerreotypes to contemporary prints. The additional images will significantly increase the number of photographs available to Artstor users for teaching and scholarship.

When complete, the collection will represent photographs ranging from early to contemporary photography and will include these highlights from the museum’s permanent collection:

  • daguerreotypes produced by the Boston photographic firm of Albert Sands Southworth and Josiah John Hawes;
  • portraits taken by Julia Margaret Cameron, known for her portrait studies of Victorian luminaries;
  • portraits taken by Julia Margaret Cameron, known for her portrait studies of Victorian luminaries;
  • figures from the Modernist Photo-Secession movement with works by Edward Steichen, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Gertrude Kasebier, and Francis Bruguière; photographs from other 20th century
  • photographers, such as Margaret Bourke-White, Brassaï, Walker Evans, Andreas Feininger, Victor Keppler, Nickolas Muray, Arnold Newman, Arthur Rothstein, Aaron Siskind, Paul Strand, and Minor White.
