Collection Visual Image Web Archive

About this Collection

Like books and magazines in the Library's general collections, this set of websites complements the original and historical visual material held in the Prints & Photographs Division. Included are sites for photographers and cartoonists represented in P&P (e.g., Kuper, Prokudin-Gorskii, Rogovin, and Telnaes). Also, websites for new digital image formats (e.g., Wrist photography, Reicholdarts cell phone photos, and Micah Wright remix posters). Other sites document new ways of displaying the visual arts through virtual galleries (e.g., Alternative Museum) and new ways of representing architectural work and the built environment (e.g., McKissack, Pritzker Prize, Vergara's Invincible Cities, and Viñoly). Major then-current event themes include views of Kurdistan and the Iraq War.

Collection Period: April 2006 to November 2006.

Frequency of Collection: Sites in the collection were targeted for capture monthly, quarterly, or once.
