Finnish Museum of Photography joins Flickr Commons

Today the  Finnish Museum of Photography joined Flickr: The Commons, an online repository for openly licensed images, as a participating institution. The Finnish Museum of Photography is the national special museum for photography and houses diverse collections on photographic art, photographic culture, photojournalism, fashion shots, press photos and portraits, by both professionals and amateurs. The sets that have now been made available through Flickr Commons (under “no known copyright restrictions”) contain some of the oldest colour photographs called autochromes, historical photos of Finnish agriculture and more.

This release through Flickr Commons now also enables users to contribute their knowledge through comments and tags, making it accessible to millions of people around the world. The full press release is available here – more information on Flickr Commons and a list of all participating institutions can be found on this page.
