Is there anybody who isn’t covering the Democratic convention? Even the Library of Congress has a correspondent there. She’s photog Carol M. Highsmith, and she’s been filing images (copyright-free) from the Mile-High City. She’ll be filing from Minneapolis-St. Paul, too.
Highsmith has already donated a large (also copyright-free) image archive to the LOC:
The online presentation of the Carol M. Highsmith Archive features photographs of landmark buildings and architectural renovation projects in Washington, D.C., and throughout the United States. The first 23 groups of photographs contain more than 2,500 images and date from 1980 to 2005, with many views in color as well as black-and-white. Extensive coverage of the Library of Congress Jefferson Building was added in 2007. The archive is expected to grow to more than 100,000 photographs covering all of the United States.
