“Whether you're a collector, historian, or photographer, the I Photo Central website is the place to go to see (and perhaps buy) a wide range of photographs from throughout the history of the medium. With its intelligent book reviews, historical resources and wealth of images, it's a place you'll want to visit often.”

Stephen Perloff

Editor, The Photo Review / The Photograph Collector

I Photo Central provides thousands of web pages for the photography collector, curator and historian. This site includes articles on collecting issues (such as connoisseurship and print values; insurance and risk management; appraisals; buying and selling images; developing a photography collecting library; framing/matting and preserving your collection; conservation, etc.). The largest for-sale fine art photography gallery on the web is databased here and is easily accessed through an extensive on-site search engine.

212 issues of the popular E-Photo Newsletter are also archived here and are also searchable; and there is a major International Photography Calendar of Events section.

An additional Special Exhibits section focuses on specific topics, photography processes (such as autochromes, daguerreotypes, stereo views and oratones), contemporary photography and individual photographers.
