The Invisible Histories website provides a platform for researchers to present photographs in context and explore hidden narratives. It aims to:

Every month, we bring together contributors across the humanities and social sciences who — through their photo essays and captions — are developing new ways of thinking about the aesthetic, economic, moral, and political questions that arise at the crossroads of photography and history, as well as the potentials of digital story-telling and image-guided scholarship.

This project is supported by the Joint Center for History of Economics at Harvard University and the University of Cambridge.
