Muftah: A Free Online Photo Archive Explores the Middle East’s Pluralistic History

Agh, this article is from last December, but the archive looks great.. I love photography collections. From Muftah: A Free Online Photo Archive Explores the Middle East’s Pluralistic History. “In September 2017, the American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) in Amman, Jordan published an online archive of historical images from across the Middle East. The project is being supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Whilst working as an archivist, I helped start this ambitious project to digitize and publish 30,000 photos over four years.”
