Digital Image Collection

The Trust offers a specialized collection of photographic resources available for study purposes and for publication. These images include historic photographs, restoration documentation and current photography of the Trust’s sites, as well as historic images of Frank Lloyd Wright, his family, and both historic and contemporary images of selected buildings designed by Wright’s Oak Park Studio.

Please note: The online digital image collection is not available at this time. The Trust plans to make the digital image collection accessible again in 2025.

Selected images are available as digital files (jpeg, 300 dpi, 4” x 6”) with other formats available upon request.

Image reproductions may be licensed for scholarly, commercial, or personal/study uses. All requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and must include the name of the applicant, intended use, author/publisher, expected date of publication, requested collection image, and photography format requirements.

Image requests must be submitted six to eight weeks prior to the date the material(s) are needed to ensure adequate processing time.

Images will not be provided to the requester until the contract is countersigned and payment of any applicable fees is received by the Trust.

Images of works from the Trust’s collection may not be reproduced without the express written permission of the institution and that of the copyright holder, when applicable. Copying or redistributing images in any form for personal or corporate gain is prohibited.

The Trust reserves the right to limit the number of copies; to refuse permission for inappropriate use; to charge fees different from those presented on this site.
