Delve in to the Past: Browse High Quality Photographs

The photographs from the collection of UNKRA we present in this exhibition were taken between 1951 and 1954 approximately. They comprise numbered prints kept in boxes; shots assembled by Mrs. Ferguson in Geneva, in albums for public display purposes and illustrative photographs pasted in Mr. Whittiker’s unpublished historical narrative.
In total, they represent more than 4,000 photographs.The United Nations’ Department of Public Information (DPI) collected photographs of Korea, taken in the field by the official photographer and field staff. Occasionally, they received several stills from other sources. Although they are usually accompanied by captions, the photographers’ name is not always mentioned. Exhaustive research in the archives of UNKRA allowed us to identify some of them.
