I am very pleased to announce that, by the kind permission of the
PHOTOHST moderator, Richard Pearce-Moses, the archives of PHOTOHST are
now available via WAIS in Conservation OnLine (CoOL). For a while, at
least, the database will be updated monthly, when the ListServ Notebook
for the month is complete. Later we may speed things up a bit.

PHOTOHST is an unmoderated forum on the history and criticism of
photography.  Participants may share or request information on the
following topics: biography of photographers/studios, interpretation of
images, description of images, schools/styles/groups, genres. Discussion
may include 19th and 20th century images.  Participants may also wish to
share information regarding relevant job announcements, exhibitions,
publications, conferences, and grants.  Reviews are welcome; please
include a full citation.  Participants are welcome to introduce other
topics relevant to the principal focus of the list.

Technical questions regarding the practice of photography (picture
taking, darkroom techniques) are not appropriate for this list.
PHOTO-L@XXXXX covers those topics.  In general, cinema does not belong
here; a variety of lists are dedicated to that topic.

Participants include photo historians, archivists, curators, and others.
Amateurs and professionals alike are welcome.  Anyone is welcome to

PHOTOHST is owned by:

provides Internet access to a group of full text databases of
