“The historical images in the International Mission Photography Archive come from Protestant and Catholic missionary collections held at a number of centers in Britain, continental Europe, and North America. The photographs record missionary endeavors and reflect the missionaries’ _experience of communities and environments abroad. There are examples of the physical influence the mission presence brought—mission compounds, church and school buildings—as well as examples of the cultural impact of mission teaching and Western influence, including schools and training programs, Christian practices, and Western technology and fashions. The pictures document indigenous peoples’ responses to missions and the history of indigenous churches which are often now a major force in society. They also offer views of landscapes, of cities, and of towns before and in the early stages of modern development.”
