The History of Photography

By Linda Tancs

Photojournalist Dorothea Lange once remarked that a camera is a tool for learning.  That’s certainly the goal at the Museum of Photography in Charleroi, Belgium.  Touted as the largest photography museum in Europe, the facility’s learning tools include a discovery trail, digital laboratory, darkroom and mobile studio.  Housed in a former Carmelite monastery, the museum is home to 80,000 prints and three million negatives representing the entire history of photography from the 19th century to the present day.  The collection is spread across the renovated monastery and a newer contemporary wing.
