Photography Research

A research guide created for students in the photography program at Lesley University's College of Art & Design.

New! 20th century photography e-book

History of Photography

History of Photography is an international peer reviewed journal devoted to the history, practice and theory of photography.

Start with reference sources

Use reference sources to get background information on a photographer.

Having background information provides context for your research. If you can not find much by searching an artist's name, you might instead search by the techniques used, years at work or major art movements and eras. 

Search for articles about photography

Start with these two art databases for your photography topics. For more search options, choose from our complete list of databases

Bibliographies - yours and others

We cite so that authors and artists receive credit for their original scholarship. 

Our LUCAD Library research help page has citation examples and tools to help you do this in your paper.

TIP! Be sure to look for bibliographies when reviewing books, articles or online sources about your topic. These will quickly lead you to relevant material which has already been vetted.
