The aim of the Europeana Space project is to create new opportunities for employment and economic growth within the creative industries sector based on Europe’s rich digital cultural resources. It will provide an open environment for the development of applications and services based on digital cultural content. The use of this environment will be fostered by a vigorous, wide-ranging and sustainable programme of promotion, dissemination and replication of the Best Practices developed within the project. The extensive resources and networks of the Europeana Space consortium will be drawn on to ensure the success of the project.

Photomediations: An Open Book redesigns a coffee-table book as an online experience. Through a comprehensive introduction and four chapters featuring over 200 images drawn from various open repositories, it tells a unique story about the relationship between photography and other media. The book also contains three open chapters, the content of which can develop and grow over time: a collection of essays about the idea of photomediations; a social space; and an exhibition space. Photomediations: An Open Book is an experiment in open and hybrid publishing – as well as a celebration of the book as a living object. The Book is part of Europeana Space, a project funded by the European Union’s ICT Policy Support Programme under GA n° 621037. It is being made available under the CC BY licence 4.0. Individual licences apply to all included images, as indicated.
