Rue des Archives is a French photo agency which works with professional picture buyers for magazines, books, internet and television.

The core of our agency is the AGIP picture agency, founded in 1935 in Paris. On top of the 3,000,000 pictures from AGIP, we feature specialty photographers which include Gérald Bloncourt (political and humanitarian images), Michel Sima (artists & workshops), René Saint Paul (photojournalism, Albert Camus), Raymond Cauchetier (“Nouvelle Vague” film sets), etc. We also represent major image sources in France such as CineStreet (French movie archives), Bourgeron (psychiatry), Tallandier (an archive with 100 years of historical photos and illustrations), Paul-Emile Victor, etc.

Within the French territory we distribute several major world sources. These include Mary Evans Picture Library, The Granger Collection NYC, The Everett Collection, Snap Photo, Süddeutsche Zeitung from Munich, Lebrecht Music & Arts from London, etc.
