I began animating archival images as a way to bring new life to archival sources. I've spent many hours poring over archives, both paper and digital, and I've often sought ways to integrate my love of history with my love of imagery. While some images have some rights reserved, I do my best to keep my sources restricted to images that have clearly entered the Public Domain.

Special thanks to Archive.org, the British Library, the Biodiversity Heritage Foundation, and the many other wonderful sites that support and encourage digital access to history.
