Our Place - The World Heritage Collection (a photographic archive)
There are more than one thousand World Heritage sites recognised by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee. These are places of both natural and cultural importance. OUR PLACE in partnership with UNESCO is building an online photographic archive and interactive website to record these sites. Any photographer can contribute to the project.
This could be a good model for many kinds of image archiving projects.
