Cimelia Photographica

Historical photographs from earlier than 1900 have a source value above and beyond their documentary intention and, therefore, they have to be considered not only as research tools but also research objects. The Cimelia Photographica project started off the systematic study of our significant historical holdings (c. 1850-1900). This study includes the high-resolution digitalization of all the photographic mounts. This way not only are the photographs themselves recorded, but also the traces that their archiving history has left behind.
