Panos Pictures is collaborating with ARTstor to share 35,000 images of contemporary global affairs in the Digital Library. Panos specializes in documenting critical social issues as well as stories beyond the daily media agenda. From urban development in Turkey, and deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, to detailed photos of extinct and endangered species at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, the endurance of cyclists in the Tour de Faso, and Charlie Chaplin impersonators in India, the collection covers thousands of compelling stories and issues, soon to be discoverable via the ARTstor Digital Library. With more than 100 contributing photographers based across the globe, the Panos archive is one of the most comprehensive visual records of our contemporary world. Images documenting urban and rural communities, diverse landscapes and the built environment, peace and conflict, tell the story of the ties between globalized and localized life.
