The Collection

Timeview represents and manages an archive of vintage, analog photography. We acquire photo collections including the copyrights from mainly amateur photographers. The collection covers the pre-digital era approximately from 1850 up to the 1980’s. The company owns nearly half a million images.

Lost & Found: Vernacular & Found Photography

Wikipedia defines vernacular photography as “the creation of photographs, usually by amateur or unknown photographers both professional and amateur, who take everyday life and common things as subjects. Vernacular photographs are types of accidental art, in that they often are unintentionally artistic.” Found photography refers to the recovery of lost, unclaimed, or discarded vernacular photographs or snapshots.


Timeview creates and provides art- and advisory services for retail companies, interior designers, architects and project developers of hospitality, health care and corporate spaces.
