Comer Archive of Chicago in the Year 2000

Like most large American cities, Chicago has been the focus of many visual documentary projects, including such films as "Hoop Dreams" and the various WPA photojournalism efforts of the 1930s and 1940s. In the year 2000, more than 200 photographers "recorded the people of Chicago in every feature of their public and social lives as well as the buildings and landscape they occupied." With the help...

Over the past one-hundred and fifty years, groups of photographers have formed collectives to promote their work and, at times, to advocate on behalf of certain social causes. The photographers that comprise the Documentography group work to achieve both goals and have developed this site to showcase some of their own work, along with the works of other independent photo-journalists. From the main...

With a cover that looks suspiciously like one of the 20th century's most beloved photographic magazines (hint: "File" is an anagram of its moniker), File is an online photography magazine that specializes in "alternate takes, odd angles, unconventional observations". As its makers wryly note, "We leave the Kodak Moments to the family album, the glossy fashion spreads to Vogue, and the photo...
Foter Blog: How To Attribute Creative Commons Photos

With more than 227 million images available for legal use on its site, Creative Commons is a phenomenal resource for bloggers, educators, web designers, and many others working in digital images. However, according to the researchers at Foter Blog, more than 90 percent of Creative Commons photos are not attributed at all. Of those that are attributed, less than 10 percent are attributed properly....
Great Mirror

Interpreting and documenting landscapes has been the province of photojournalists, art historians, writers, filmmakers, and other interested parties since time immemorial. Geographers have contributed much to this endeavor as well, though not nearly as many of them have a presence on the internet. That lacuna is partially filled by the Great Mirror website, created by geographer Bret Wallach, who...
H.H. Bennett-Photographer Extraordinaire

The landscapes of the Midwest have been documented by many photographers during the past 150 years, but some may have not heard of the lovely work of one H.H. Bennett. Born in Farnham, Canada in 1843, Henry Hamilton Bennett moved to the town of Kilbourn City, Wisconsin (later renamed Wisconsin Dells), at the age of 14. After receiving a severe gunshot wound at the siege of Vicksburg during the...
Intrigue Technologies, The Vision Sensor Company

Intrigue Technologies, led by Vladimir Brajovic, has developed software that can "intelligently correct for common illumination problems in photography." The technology the firm is developing makes it possible to balance exposure across images, creating cleaner images and improving contrast. A news release posted on the website describes the product more generally. Also available from this site is...

This fine photographic archive serves as both a great repository of visual historical documentation of the King County area (which includes Seattle) in the state of Washington, as a good example of a collaborative partnership between various organizations.
