ARCHIVES MALANGA has been providing photographs to the publishing world for twenty-five years. It contains one of the largest collections of photo-portraits of literary figures. The strength of this archive is primarily in the uniqueness of the image as well as the ephemeral shot. Many of these photos have never been published.

A large number of the candid and formal portraits are internationally known images, such as Mick Jagger, William Burroughs and Iggy Pop.

Specialties range from Andy Warhol, the Velvet Underground, Edie Sedgwick, and Robert Mapplethorpe to the 1939 New York World's Fair, with a bit of erotica thrown in.

In addition, the archive holds film footage of Jane Fonda and Roger Vadim, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Virgil Thomson, Benedetta Barzini, and Jack Smith. Movie-stills exist from this footage as well.

Extensive collections exist of Keith Richards, Patti Smith, John Ashbery, Nico, Rene Ricard, and Allen Ginsberg and the Beats. New additions include Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Richard Wright, and Robert Moses. Historical imagery consists of Berkshire scenics, New York cityscapes, the Third Avenue El, and a vast postcard collection of 20th-century oceanliners.

ARCHIVES MALANGA is dedicated to the task of providing biographers, photo editors, and art directors with fast, efficient service.
