Image Archive and Research Platform for the Islamic, Ancient and Christian Orient

Search the Archives

The Archive originated in 1980 as a research archive for Classical Archaeology, Byzantine Art & Architecture, soon followed by Islamic Art and Architecture: slides and black and white photos taken during various travels in the Mediterranean, the Near East, and Central Asia. 

Later, also historical photo material of the Orient was collected, and due to the great changes in the Orient, images from the 1960s and 1970s can already be described as "historical".
