The site is an online photographers encyclopedia, containing all relevant and basic information (life, work and copyrights, as well as links to other websites).
At the moment, appr. 40.000 photographers, coming from the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistoriscche Documentatie (RKD / Governmental desk for arthistorical documentation) and the Nederlands Fotomuseum Rotterdam
