Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Photo Archive: Oxford University Images

OUImages, the online digital media library of the University of Oxford, brings together every element of Oxford's visual identity into a single, easily accessible database.

Within some of the most beautiful architecture in the world, Oxford's colleges, museums and libraries house some of the finest, and most diverse, art collections and historical artifacts, and its departments hold unique imagery relevant to their research. These combined with Oxford's traditions, events, student life and academic activities, form the basis of the extensive photographic and video content of Oxford University Images.

The website already has 6,000 images and the total number is set to grow. They show the changing face of the university, from an early photograph of ladies in large dresses punting on the River Cherwell in 1895 to a group of victorious female rowers from Keble College celebrating after a race in Eights Week in 2010.
