LIFE photo archive

LIFE magazine was an American magazine founded in 1883. It became a weekly news magazine with a strong emphasis on photojournalism.

LIFE photo archive contains millions of photographs, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google

Being an American magazine does not mean that worldide and, in our case, European oriented topics are not present in Life's database.

On the contrary, thousands of photographs are dealing with Twentieth century Europe, European nations and European history. This is possible even if suggested basic searches -on the right in the home page-, as well as browsing capacities by a selection of categories: people (such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Louis Armstrong, and Marilyn Monroe), places (such as Fort Peck, or St. Peter’s Square), events (such as the 1930s oil boom, or the March on Washington), sports (such as baseball or diving), etc., are of course focused on American culture and history.
