ARTstor and Bob Schalkwijk are collaborating to share approximately 2,000 images selected from the photographer’s archives of pre-Columbian, colonial, and 19th- and 2oth-century art from Mexico in the Digital Library. The collection in ARTstor will focus on murals by renowned artists such as Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco.

An accomplished anthropological photographer, Bob Schalkwijk began his career in 1960 in Mexico. In addition to his photography of Mexican art, Schalkwijk’s work documents indigenous traditions, culinary customs, sculptures, arts and crafts, and local dress. He has traveled throughout four continents and most of Mexico focusing on people, their environment, and their culture. His archives of more than 400,000 photographs range from portraits to landscapes throughout the world.
