Welcome to the Dirck Halstead Photographic Database.
    The Dirck Halstead Photographic Archive consists of black and white and color prints, negatives, slides, and manuscript materials created by the award-winning photojournalist during a career than spanned more than 40 years. This database showcases a small portion of Halstead´s body of work; it features a checklist of slides and a limited number of 35 mm black and white negatives described in the online finding aid. Over 1,000 additional images with item-level metadata are also available in this cyber gallery. To access other materials, including negatives and prints from the archive and a biography of Halstead, please consult the finding aid for the Halstead Photographic Archive, available online.
