ICONOS PHOTO : a reference portal for photographic heritage


Designed by the Société française de photographie and supported by the Ministry of Culture (Department of Photography/Delegation for Visual Arts/Directorate General for Artistic Creation), ICONOS PHOTO is a portal dedicated to research in photographic collections and archives. Accessible to all free of charge, ICONOS PHOTO is above all designed as a work and exchange tool for researchers, photography professionals, curators, independent curators, restorers, students and any public interested in the medium. Through this sharing of data and knowledge, the challenge is to unite a community around the question of photographic heritage, to offer a showcase to the collections, and to stimulate research into the history of photography.

Open science project, hosted by Huma-Num (CNRS) [] and benefiting from the expertise of the InVisu laboratory (CNRS/INHA) [], the ICONOS portal PHOTO wishes to provide a set of tools and give access to:

– in the ICONOS PHOTO directory which allows you to carry out searches in the collections, funds and photographic archives preserved in France;
– documentary resources linked to the history of photography;
– to a Donations and legacies vademecum dedicated to the question of the transmission of photographic funds today.
