What used to be accessible only by researchers and staff of the American Museum of Natural History is now finally made available to the public!
Just last Monday, the American Museum of Natural History formally launched its *Digital Special Collections* – a rare move for the institution in its 145-year history. The collection boasts of more than 7,000 images, many of which were previously unseen by the public and includes archival photos, rare book illustrations, drawings, notes, letters, art and other Museum memorabilia depicting its efforts in New York as well as other parts of the world. On the website, collections are divided into Rare Book Collection, Julian Dimock Collection, Lumholtz Expedition to Mexico, Art & Memorabilia, Jesup North Pacific Expedition, Photographic Collection, and Lantern Slides.
As of this writing, a total of 7,245 items have already been digitized by the Museum. It must be noted, though, that this is an ongoing effort. Professionals from the Museum’s library, interns, and volunteers work together to have new images added to the collection every week.
To build an entire reality out of pieces and fragments which used to belong to another world is a new mode of art in expressing and creating. Belgian artist Sammy Slabbinck fuses random elements of old and new images and techniques to compose a middle earth of the then and now.
Inspired by the seventies, this young artist makes it seem that such an epoch lives forever in her photographs, perfectly maintaining the spirit of the time which was characterized by a multitude of colours, contrasts and famous disco moves.

It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
