“If the Internet can be for some websites a disaster where you waste your time, happily some others, such as I Photo Central, give me back the great pleasure to be able to know a lot of things through just a small screen. More precisely, with I Photo Central I learn about what I like and what I work with: photography. This website is rich, well documented, easy to read, regularly updated and useful for both work and general culture. Visit it as often as you want, you do not deal falsely.”

I Photo Central provides thousands of web pages for the photography collector, curator and historian. This site includes articles on collecting issues (such as connoisseurship and print values; insurance and risk management; appraisals; buying and selling images; developing a photography collecting library; framing/matting and preserving your collection; conservation, etc.). The largest for-sale fine art photography gallery on the web is databased here and is easily accessed through an extensive on-site search engine.

225 issues of the popular E-Photo Newsletter are also archived here and are also searchable; and there is a major International Photography Calendar of Events section.

An additional Special Exhibits section focuses on specific topics, photography processes (such as autochromes, daguerreotypes, stereo views and oratones), contemporary photography and individual photographers.
