Publication: Belgium Photographers 1839-1939: a bibliography

This new book Belgian Photographers 1839-1939 - A Chronological Bibliography of Publications from 1945 to 2020' offers an overview of printed publications, published between 1945 and 2020, about Belgian photographers who were active from the invention of photography until the beginning of the WWII. It is a chronological bibliography, followed by an index of authors and photographers. The latter makes it possible to find all publications in which a particular photographer is mentioned. It includes both professional and amateur photographers and photographers of local, national or international renown.

There are some 7 700 entries, including a couple of hundred cross-references, covering professional and amateur photographers as well as firms and individuals active in connected trades (for instance, platemaking, photomechanical printing, postcard publishing). For further explanations on the content and structure, please consult the section Directory: structure of entries.

This database is a revised and expanded version of the Directory of Photographers in Belgium 1839-1905 by Steven F. Joseph, Tristan Schwilden and Marie-Christine Claes, published by the Museum of Photography, Antwerp in 1997. The same authors have been active in creating this online version, once again with the enthusiastic support of FOMU. English is used throughout, in order to make the database accessible to a broad audience of international scholars and researchers. An exception is made for locations and Place Names in Belgium, which have been faithfully transcribed from the original sources used by the photographers themselves.
