Eighty daguerreotype images, with related themes guide the visitor through a virtual exhibition of daguerreotypes in various prestigious European public and private collections. The exhibition “Photography on a Silver Plate”, curated by Daguerreobase Project will be launching soon on the website Europeana, which deals with the shared European cultural heritage.
Daguerreobase is an online application designed to contain detailed information about daguerreotypes. Members can view, edit and store records of individual daguerreotypes and establish relations to other records based on a wide range of characteristics. This includes collections, owners, creators, hallmarks, housing models, sizes, materials and free text descriptions.
This project is partially funded by the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP).
