We appreciate the work of Luminous-Lint as a resource for understanding photography. In order to enhance their activities, they have launched this Kickstarter campaign!

Message from the creator

"The Story Begins With A Personal History…..
About 10 years ago, I decided to learn the History of Photography. I had always been interested in it, but never had the time to do so properly. I created Luminous-Lint to share the huge amount of material I’ve collected and created.
Many thousands of you have watched this project evolve over the past decade. I have had the pleasure of getting to know some of you personally, and look forward to meeting more of you who share my enthusiasm for the History of Photography. A great many collectors, curators, estates of photographers, gallery owners and dealers around the world receive the Newsletters, which are all online, and have shared material – both for the website and from it."
