About the Photographic Archive PDF  | Print |  E-mail

The Photographic Archive of the Société Jersiaise contains over 60,000 images dating from the mid 1840s to the present day and is the principal Jersey collection of nineteenth and early twentieth century photography. The Island of Jersey has played host to a rich photographic history as a territory lying on the cusp of Britain and France, the two cultures responsible for pioneering the medium of photography itself.

Notable photographers represented include Charles Hugo, Thomas Sutton,William Collie and Henry Mullins, accompanied by a wealth of local and immigrant photographers. Together the collection offers both a detailed representation of Jersey History throughout the photographic era and a fine cross section of the historic processes of the medium.
