This database is made up of 11,000 old photographs that have been matched with audio backgrounds. Re-created in studio, these backgrounds evoke sounds typical of the period when the photograph was taken.

You may consult the photographs in two ways: either in specific groups divided into eight main categories, or by keywords that refer to audio, visual or conceptual realities.


Explore as well 34 photographs in which the sources of the sounds are visible (and annotated).
