The Archive

fotolibra is the first Open Access library, a portal for picture researchers to discover previously unseen private picture collections for the first time

They include historical archives and modern photographs; every subject under the sun.

Many are pictures that can never be taken again. The fotolibra archive grows by the hour as contributors upload the gems of their collections, with pictures dating from the earliest days of photography to the present day.

Original and unique image collections, some of which have been gathering dust in attics, cupboards and albums for years, can now be searched.

The addition of work by today's excellent pro and semi-pro photographers working in every conceivable field makes fotolibra the place to find the perfect never-before-used image to illustrate your current project.

By providing the key, fotolibra unlocks hidden treasures from private collections all over the world.

As a picture editor or researcher, you can source this rapidly growing collection of great images without busting your budget.
