Photographs and images provide the perfect vehicle to visually capture the extraordinary atmosphere of life. John Rogers has amassed the world's largest privately-held collection of historic photographic images that touch upon every aspect of American culture; genres include politics, music/entertainment, automotive, and landscape photography among countless others.
John Rogers Archive collection contains over 200 million images including vintage studio photographs, news/press photos, glass plate negatives, and cutting-edge digital photography. Over the years, Rogers has expanded his business to forge partnerships with publications, media organizations and photographers across the country and more recently in Australia and New Zealand, opening up an even larger collection of press images.
Rogers is on a crusade to preserve the world's great historic archives while at the same time making these historic images available to the public.
