Panos Pictures and Artstor have collaborated to share an additional 1,000 images of contemporary global affairs in the Digital Library.

Panos specializes in documenting critical social issues as well as stories beyond the contemporary media landscape. Urban development in Turkey, deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, records of extinct and endangered species at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, a barbershop in Nigeria, and Charlie Chaplin impersonators in India are among the thousands of compelling places and people now discoverable via Artstor. The Panos Profile includes more than twenty photographers working in the North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America. Dozens of additional photographers comprise the Panos network to create one of the most comprehensive visual records of international contemporary life. Images documenting urban and rural communities, landscape and the built environment, peace and conflict tell the story of the ties between globalized and regional life.

For over twenty years, Panos Pictures has been working with the commercial and nonprofit sectors, actively using photography to campaign and communicate through a range of media to new and diverse audiences. Recognizing that photography is more than pictures on a page, Panos has engaged in all forms of visual communication, producing exhibitions, multimedia, and video, as well as long-term documentary projects. Panos photographers seek out stories that matter and bring an unparalleled understanding and awareness of the sensitivities and ethical dimensions of the issues and areas they document. (more…)

Artstor and the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) are now sharing more than 450 images of pochoir prints and photographic depictions of interior retail architecture and design in Paris from 1928-1932.

The pochoir process, made by applying layers of paint guided by thin zinc or copper cut-out stencils, is characterized by its crisp edges and brilliant colors. Pochoir illustration was popular in 1920s Paris and was often featured in French fashion journals such as Le Jardin des Dames et des Modes and the Gazette du Bon Ton. Both the pochoir and photographic plates represent Art Deco design in the period following the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts of 1925. (more…)
