Woodstock, NY, Oct. 08, 2008. The Image Works, a stock photography agency located in Woodstock, NY, celebrates 25 years in business. Founded in 1983 by two photographers, it has grown to become one of the oldest and most important independent editorial stock photo agencies in the United States.
For over two decades, The Image Works has stayed true to its core values by remaining completely independent of the forces exerted by the industry giants attempting to control the market.
As part of its ongoing growth, The Image Works is pleased to announce the addition of four new collections to its archive. The new collections are AKG Images (Germany), the British Museum of Natural History (Great Britain), Photo 12 (France), and the Auscape Natural History Archive (Australia).
The addition of these collections is one more step towards achieving the goal of creating a unified, comprehensive archive of exceptional contemporary and historical images.
As editorial specialists, The Image Works believes that the value of an image lies in a combination of its visual strength and the information it conveys. The Image Works’ archive is extremely diverse, yet carefully focused, with images from varied sources: top-notch photojournalists, a network of affiliated agencies, specialized collections, museums, and newspapers.
The archive contains over one million images online, with access to more than 35 million images. This unique collection, combined with a highly experienced and specialized research staff, is an unparalleled resource for editorial picture buyers.
The Image Works licenses images to books, magazines, documentary films, advertisers, and other media.
