Searching for information on locally, nationally, or internationally renowned amateur or professional photographers working in Belgium before the Second World War? You might find some information on the internet, but many sources have only been published in print. Furthermore, this printed information is very scattered and difficult to find. It may have been published in journals on culture and art, on heritage, on local and general history, on photography and history of photography, in catalogues of collections and exhibitions, in reference works, monographs and theses.

Belgian Photographers 1839-1939 provides an overview of printed publications issued between 1945 and 2020 about Belgian photographers who were active from the discovery of photography until the beginning of the Second World War. It presents a chronological bibliography, an author index and—most importantly—a comprehensive photographer index. The latter allows one to identify all publications in which a certain photographer has been mentioned.

This book will be an invaluable guide for anyone interested in the history of photography in Belgium, including photo and art historians, heritage researchers, genealogists, and archivists.

Frank Driesen (°1954) is a philosopher and librarian by training. However, he soon became interested in photography. He studied with Bart Michielsen and followed Jan van Dijk’s course on historical photographic processes. Since 2014 he has been working as a voluntary collaborator at the Collection Department of FOMU Fotomuseum Antwerpen.
