“I Photo Central is attractive and easy to navigate, with information for everyone, from curators to collectors, to those wanting to see fine examples from the history of photography. I peruse it regularly and recommend it to colleagues and students. At a glance, it gives a condensed education into the medium's rich history and how photographs are valued and exchanged in our present market.”
I Photo Central provides thousands of web pages for the photography collector, curator and historian. This site includes articles on collecting issues (such as connoisseurship and print values; insurance and risk management; appraisals; buying and selling images; developing a photography collecting library; framing/matting and preserving your collection; conservation, etc.). The largest for-sale fine art photography gallery on the web is databased here and is easily accessed through an extensive on-site search engine.
242 issues of the popular E-Photo Newsletter are also archived here and are also searchable; and there is a major International Photography Calendar of Events section.
An additional Special Exhibits section focuses on specific topics, photography processes (such as autochromes, daguerreotypes, stereo views and oratones), contemporary photography and individual photographers.
