Luminous-Lint (or Luminous Lint) is a website on photography, run by Alan Griffiths,[1] on vintage and contemporary photography.[2] The site also serves as a collaborative knowledge base on the history of photography and includes some 60,000 photographs, 700 online exhibitions, biographies of more than 7,000 photographers, and information about techniques, galleries and dealers, photography timelines and other photography-related issues.[3] Robert Hirsch has referred to it as a "top-notch" photographic site.[4]

The site reproduces Photo Synthesis, a series of articles on individual works that Colin Westerbeck first contributed to the Los Angeles Times.[5]
