We are aware that there are many photographers over the age of sixty and those whom have passed who have spent their lives creating incredible archives of their work that is not regularly seen and could therefore be forgotten or lost forever. To address this issue we have created The Photographers Archive where you can link directly to those archives that have been made available online. This is an index of work that should be useful to researchers, photo editors and anyone else interested in discovering photographers work of the past. This is a work in progress and all suggestions for inclusion are gratefully received.*
*If you wish to have your archive considered for inclusion please email us your URL and a brief description of your work in no more than 50 words.
