British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Existing research into accessing digital image collections?

Dear all,

I'm currently looking at the prospect of initiating a digital humanities initiative on the subject of accessing digital photograph collections. Can anyone point me towards similar such work which is innovative and already taking place? I'm aware of (and involved with!) the good work being done at DeMontfort Uni. 

The project we are looking at will be based on the premise of looking at the materiality and characteristics of digital photographs rather than working with accompanying descriptive metadata.

If anyone knows of similar ongoing research, or has potential leads for discussions, please send me message or contact me directly at

Any and all suggestions are very welcome!

Many thanks from St Andrews,
