This digital collection is part of the Benaki Museum’s Photographic Archives Department, which was established in 1973 to collect, preserve and document photographs of Early Christian, Byzantine and post-Byzantine art and architecture. Since then the Department’s original scope has gradually been extended to cover images of Greece and its culture, as well as its history and contemporary society. The Photographic Archives Department comprises 300,000 negatives and 25,000 original photographs dating from the 19th and 20th centuries. It was created through the purchase or donation of important collections, including those of the professional photographers Nelly's, Voula Papaioannou, Pericles Papachatzidakis, Dimitris Harissiadis, Nikolaos Rizos, Nikolaos Tombazis, as well as those of the amateur photographers Rena Andreadi, Stephanos Malikopoulos, Loukas Benakis, and Ioannis Charamis. The Department also contains the photograph collections of the Byzantinologist Laskarina Boura, the architect Maria Zagorisiou, and the writer Elli Papadimitriou. The Photographic Archives Department is open to all researchers. For their assistance a card catalogue of 50,000 prints was compiled based on subject matter and location. Moreover, there are plans create a complete electronic catalogue of the entire collection in the near future.
