Abstract – EuropeanaPhotography is an EU-funded digitization project that will provide
Europeana with over 430.000 of the finest examples of early photography, for an impressive
increase in the number of photos available in the Europeana. These photographs provide a
unique insight into the evolution of European society and of the art of photography between the
19th and 20th century, which is a valuable source for research in many fields (history,
economics, sociology…). EuropeanaPhotography will also enrich Europeana with materials
from countries with a currently limited display, for a wider overview of European history.
