DisgrifiadEuropean Society for the History of Photography
The ESHPh was founded with the aim researching the historical development of photography from its origins up to the present and integrating that within a European context. Photographers, general historians and historians of photography, philosophers, sociologists, ethnologists, academics, curators and private collectors as well as many important European institutions and some from further afield all belong to the ESHPh. Alongside its research activities the ESHPh takes part in a worldwide exchange of information. It supports both the recognition of the history of photography as an academic discipline and the establishment of chairs in the discipline at European universities.
