Photography and sustainability in historical perspective

A. Monte, M.M. Roeling, J.C. Reijenga

Research output: Book/ReportBookPopular


Photography exists since the early 1800's. This book gives an overview of sustainability of photography during the past 200 years. Both the (chemistry of the) image carrier and photo camera's are treated. While the former has shown consistent improvements, the latter has displayed rapid deterioration in time. Some ideas about a hypothetical "sustainable camera" are presented, and an appendix illustrates some highlights in 19th century photography, indicating that most of the present applications of photography have in fact found their roots in the early 19th century
