FotoGeschichte: Contents List of the journal since Heft 1, 1981

‘Collodions & Clopinettes’: In French, with some translations into English, this site is devoted to the beginnings of photography predominately in France. In July 2007 was reconstructed to focus entirely on the writings (from 1958 onwards) of Pierre G. Harmant (1921–95) and Paul Marillier. From 1997 to 2006 the site had a more diverse content in also presenting some work by other associated photographic historians — the old pages now preserved at web.archive.org.
