Retrato - Photo Archive of the Fillipinas Heritage Library

Retrato is where the public can view the images in the Filipinas Heritage Library’s Photo Archive. It consists of searchable black-and-white images, in thumbnail size, depicting Philippine life through the late-19th and early-20th centuries. The images are documented according to a standard adopted by the Library.

A long-term project, Retrato has these aims:

  • To classify and document the approximately 35,000 images in the Library’s Photo Archive.

  • To digitize these images and make them accessible online, with a system for ordering and payment.

  • To expand the collection to include images from the second half of the 20th century.
