Spaarnestad Photo is an independent institution formerly located on the Nasssaulaan in Haarlem, in the Netherlands, whose goal is to preserve around 5 million photos. It was founded in 1985. In 2008, the photographic archives of Spaarnestad Photo were moved to the Nationaal Archief in The Hague. The Spaarnestad Photo archives worked with the Nationaal Archief and Wikipedia to place 1000 photos on Wikimedia Commons in 2010.
