In Memoriam 2017


Photography deaths in 2017,
as documented in the Photography Database

 

Photography Database is a new implementation and major extension of work done by editors Andrew Eskind and Greg Drake while at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, beginning in the 1980s. It provides basic factual information about more than 100,000 photographers and photography professionals, as well as public photographic collections, commercial galleries, photographic exhibitions, and citations to the many published sources used to compile the data. The scope is international, and the time frame runs from the beginnings of photography to contemporary. Data is continually updated -- actively tracking photographer obituaries, new and expanding collections, exhibitions, galleries, reviews, catalogs, and reference literature.
