Werner Forman's life work was devoted to documenting in photographs the history, art, religion and customs of the great civilizations and tribal societies of the past. The archive has extensive collections of images of archaeological sites, architecture, evocative landscapes and art from the great museum and private collections of the world. Many of these images are unique, some are from cultures which have now vanished or areas which are inaccessible nowadays. We are always ready to help with research, or you can request access to the online collection by clicking above.
