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. (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 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. (Barbara Tannenbaum, Curator of Photography, Cleveland Museum of Art) Luminous-Lint is an essential resource for understanding photography. As John Cloake, a UK collector, wrote "it feels like a commonwealth allowing collectors and enthusiasts to contribute in a minor way to the research effort."
