Harvey Richards Media Archive

It all began in 1986 with the publication of Critical Focus, the Black and White Photographs of Harvey Wilson Richards by Paul Richards, PhD.  During the following 25 years, Paul archived and licensed the use of Harvey Richards’ film and photo images in  films, television programs, books, museums and magazines. When the internet arrived, he established the Harvey Richards Media Archive and converted all 22 films and thousands of his still photo images to web compatible digital formats.  The Press and Archive now offer the public, publishers, filmmakers and other media producers access to digital video on demand and over a thousand digitized photo images in image galleries on the web.
