Life Magazine’s Photo Archive

You can now search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of Life and Google. ALA Direct reviews this site with this summary, “The collection contains some of the most iconic images of the 20th century, including works from photojournalists Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Gordon Parks, and W. Eugene Smith.” The images are available through normal Google channels such as a Google Search or a Google Image Search, but are also available through the Life archive directly.

This archive is available on Google free for personal and research purposes, but copyright and ownership of all images remains with Time Inc. The photo archive includes the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination, images from the popular TV and Hollywood culture, famous personalities, and the entire works left to the collection from life photographers. Check out these amazing images for yourself.

Thank you to Susan Ariew of the Tampa Library for the news item.
