GRAHAM HOWE CEO and owner, Curatorial Assistance, Pasadena
ROBERT HIRSCH Photo-historian, photographer and author of numerous books on photography
"I like going back to Luminous-Lint because: it is an extremely well written and well documented site incorporating many photo collections, and highlighting special clusters within the field."
"Luminous-Lint is, in my experience, the most comprehensive history of photography resource on the internet, far surpassing what you‘d find in any one book. The level of detail in the research is astounding. I have yet to find a similar site that matches it."
ELS BARENTS Director, Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie
KARL BADEN Boston College
"I refer to Luminous-Lint frequently to get a better and deeper visual understanding of photographic history; to look for new work and ideas. I also refer students - it is simply the most comprehensive and accessible database of its kind."
"I adore Luminous Lint because it is a reliable source for accurate information on subjects both mainstream and quirky in the world of photography. Also because it organizes knowledge in a non-linear fashion which encourages creative, out-of-the-box thinking."

Themes, or genres, are at the core of Luminous-Lint as they bring together photographs, texts, footnotes, reading lists for further research, photographers worth investigating, online exhibitions and visual indexes to build increasingly coherent histories.
