Adding video content to Luminous-Lint

I've been experimenting with the immense range of videos on YouTube to see how they could be used to improve our understanding of photo-history on There is remarkable and little known material including interviews with photo curators and photographers, gallery exhibitions, biographical studies of photographers, discussions on the significance of individual photographs, TV documentaries and much more. It is important to stress that at times the copyright issues over both the images and music involved is far from clear.

The first step to showing this material is the organization of a channel on YouTube for bringing together the materials and you can see the start of this at:

Then the video material will be linked onto the webpages of the photographers, techniques, institutions, timelines etc on Luminous-Lint so it is seamless. From the tests I've been doing this has immense educational possibilities.

If others are involved in using video materials in teaching photo-history please get in contact. Alan
