The George Eastman Museum, among the oldest archives of photography in the world, recently launched an online platform that allows you to search through over 250,000 objects from its collections. Aside from thousands of photographs that date back to the medium’s earliest years, the digital archive also features objects from its massive library of artifacts that together chronicle the history of image-making, from vintage cameras to film splicers to advertisements for the Eastman Kodak Company. There is also plenty of material related to the eponymous founder himself — did you know he was a shooter in more ways than one?

With over 8,000 photographers represented in museum’s holdings, the database is a rich, remarkable resource, particularly for researchers who know exactly what they are searching for. Browsing it can be overwhelming, but the search option has many filters in place, and the museum has also organized the objects by helpful classifications like “Lantern Slide” and “Blueprint.”
