Welcome to France China Archives, an open-access platform that inventories photographic archives of China located in France. It encompasses private and public holdings, whose content cover the period 1840s to the present. It is designed to provide a scholarly digital space for the study of the variety of photographic practices in China, while making accessible French resources to the scholarly community, students, and the general public.

The implementation of this project relies on the use of Omeka S, a next-generation web publishing platform for institutions interested in connecting digital cultural heritage collections with other resources online. The images are made available with the agreement of their owners to support teaching and learning, and research.
