Published in late 2016, the volume of two bulky books of large format marks the end of the project on the 1900–2000 history of European photography of the Central European House of Photography
(Stredoeurópsky dom fotografie) born in Bratislava and Vienna. The previous volumes dedicated to
the periods 1900–19381 and 1939–19692 came out in 2010 and 2014 respectively. The rationale of the project is explained by the simple fact that there has not been a single publication to date which
would incorporate the histories of photography of all present-day European countries. For example,
the Encyclopaedia of Twentieth Century Photography puts the photography of Eastern Europe at a
disadvantage with a mere eight pages of text.3 Not only East European but also other smaller European countries could also feel that they were being represented inadequately in the narrative on the history of European photography.
