History Photographed is a social media community founded and operated by Eric Damier, the Founder of Moments in History.
The community was born in 2013, with the primary goal of sharing the most iconic and needle-moving moments in history, and a secondary goal of mobilizing and uniting a global family of history lovers.
History Photographed has since grown to command the second largest collective followings of any History community globally, with a combined 15m+ history lovers spread across our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and mailing lists.
A key driver of this success is the fact that history is one of the most accessible topics of conversation globally, because photos of historical events do not discriminate. We use this accessibility to educate, spark conversation, and arouse the collective interests of our audience.
Moments in History is the next evolution of the History Photographed ecosystem. It is a metaverse project that will expand our history ecosystem, capitalizing on the enormous potential of Web 3.0, the blockchain, and the content creator economy. We are intoxicated by the community-building potential offered by NFTs and digital asset ownership.
However, Moments In History isn’t just an NFT project. It is a family. It’s a community of like-minded, passionate, innovative, and curious individuals, united by their shared love of history, and the ways in which our lives have been forged by the events of the past.
Our long-term goal is to collaborate with iconic businesses, projects and people that wish to enter the metaverse, allowing them to digitize and commercialize their IP in new ways.
We are dedicated to democratizing history – to giving unique, immersive historical experiences to people around the world, not just to those that can visit museums.
People with conviction over their ideas and the fortitude to see them through. Figures of mystique and awe that have stood the test of time.

On that land they will be purchasing an opportunity to share their historical story to our holders and anyone else who joins the platform. As always, 'The Last Supper' holders will be provided special access to all buildings/events in our metaverse platform. This is where our #Play2Learn misson truly comes to life.
