What people are saying about Art Photo Index.
"API is a new format for viewing and researching for a new generation of photographers, as well as some more familiar names. As the extensive collection of images are all keyworded, it becomes a new index of emerging artists at the cutting edge of art photography."—Martin Parr, photographer, photobook collector/historian
"Photo-Eye's Art Photo Index is an amazing resource for artists, curators, editors, and educators. Not only is it possible to research a virtual 'who's who' in contemporary photography to find out who is winning prizes and publishing new books, visitors can create their own mini-exhibitions and/or lectures using the images on the website. It's also an easy way to link to thousands of websites for more detailed information about individual photographers. This is one site it's important to see and be seen on!
"—Mary Anne Redding, chair, photography department, Marion Center for Photographic Arts, Santa Fe University of Art and Design
"I have now looked at the API website several times and each time I conducted different kinds of searches. I find it extremely well designed and wonderfully seductive in its ease of looking at unlimited images within an enormous depth of possibilities. It's logic anticipates the broadest possible means of searching for and acquiring (My Collection) preferred artists and/or images from such an enormous database of superbly seen and selected works. I love the idea that each time one logs in there is a different array of images by artists represented on the ever changing home page. This in itself will be a magnet to bring users back with fresh energy and expectations."—James Enyeart, photographer, writer, historian, former director of Center for Creative Photography and George Eastman House.
"I've spent some time now playing with Art Photo Index and it is a remarkable tool. Whether you have a few spare minutes to browse recent additions or are on a serious quest for a particular photographer or subject matter, API puts everything at your fingertips. The ability to search by keyword is both useful and unusual. Contact and website information are provided for the artists. I especially appreciate the ability to create my own collection of images for future reference. API makes it easy to discover, research and keep track of contemporary photographers."—Barbara Tannenbaum, curator, The Cleveland Museum of Art
