Cataloging and digitization of up to 124,200 color slides from the Huntington Photographic Archive of Buddhist and Asian Art, which contains photographs of pre-modern art, artifacts, and monuments.

Imaging the Buddha is a three-year project that will double the current collection of the Huntington Photographic Archive to 262,000 photographs taken by art historians John C. and Susan L. Huntington over the course of their field research in Asia from 1969-2009. All photographs are copyrighted to the Huntingtons and are being made available for Imaging the Buddha without restriction or cost. Digital masters will be made for preservation purposes, and, in addition, corrected first derivatives and accompanying metadata will be prepared for dissemination on the Archive’s live, online database free of cost to the public. Completion of this project will significantly enhance the study of Asian art, culture, and religion and foster education and research in the humanities from a variety of other disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
