It is an amalgam of collections and images from many countries and civilizations.

We act as a content provider to educational, media and other users world-wide. Our images are available via multiple agents in over 30 countries and are a rich resource for educators and info-tainment clients.

Established in 1964 the archive continues to grow with the addition of some 20,000 new digital images per year.

We work with wholly owned (our own copyright) images and source material as well as some public domain images. These are drawn from printed sources, photography campaigns and museums and archival sources across Europe, The Americas and Asia.
