The Mirror Photographic Archives
The first editorial photos ever published by The Daily Mirror were taken by a photographer working in Japan in 1904.
From those rare early pioneering assignments through more than a century of global coverage, the skill of our photojournalists has always been in understanding the impact that global events have on the people who live through them and being able to tell their story to our readers back home.
As a result, our photographic collections provide one of the largest visual archives of modern world history, told from a British perspective.
