Strengths - Photojournalism

If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart,
that's a good picture. - Eddie Adams

With one of the largest number of collections from contemporary photojournalists, the Briscoe Center’s photojournalism holdings sit at the intersection of two of the Center’s most important — and rapidly growing — collection strengths: the news media archives and photographic materials. Situated in the context of the Center's other archival holdings (including the personal papers of media industry pioneers, research archives, and newspapers), the Briscoe Center provides researchers with unparalleled resources on of the history of photojournalism.

This actively growing component includes the archives of Eddie Adams, David Hume Kennerly, Flip Schulke, Dirck Halstead, Diana Walker, Shel Hershorn, Wally McNamee, Bruce Roberts, Dick Swanson, PF Bentley, Darryl Heikes, Dennis Brack, Lucian Perkins, and Margaret Sandahl Thomas. The collections include unpublished as well as published images. In addition to photographic holdings (such as slides, negatives, prints, and tear sheets), the photojournalism collections also include such archival materials as personal papers, correspondence, diaries, news stories, and other archival materials.

Photographs are available in the Center's Research and Collections Division, which is located in Sid Richardson Hall Unit 2 on the University's main campus in Austin. Photographs are stored in closed stacks and must be used in the James Stephen Hogg Reading Room, and some collections may only be viewed by appointment. Inventories and guides exist to many of the discrete photograph collections and to the photographic components of archival collections available at the Research and Collections Division. A Visual Materials Index (VMI) is now searchable online, and many digital images can be searched and viewed in the Digital Media Repository (DMR). Some collections are temporarily unprocessed, closed, and/or restricted. Patrons seeking photographic reproductions from Center holdings should consult the 
Photo Duplication Policy, Prices, and Procedures.
