AP (Associated Press) Images is an incredible resource for those in the visual arts and anyone interested in current events. The AP is the oldest and biggest news organization in the world and has won numerous Pulitzer Prizes for outstanding journalism. In AP Images, there are over 4.6 million photographs, as well as audio and text material, from all these years of international reporting. Each image is high resolution, available for download for educational use only, and has an informative caption describing the photograph.
While you can search by any period in time, including today, you should also take advantage of their Showcases, selected images focused on a topic such as the Civil War, Exploring Colors, and World Records. Also view images from US News and International News; both are great ways to keep up with current events.
AP Images is the perfect source for quality images of politicians and celebrities, action shots, and fashion. You can also find images by concepts, such as happy, boredom, wet, and even by color! These search options make the database an excellent electronic picture file for visual inspiration.
