An image from our photo-library

Mexican Photo-library

Within the colour slide library, now containing several thousand original images all taken in Mexico during the last 20 years, we have a unique collection of Aztec images and pictures of Aztec artefacts, many visible on our Aztecs pages.

Not only can we provide a wide range of images from Mexico, we know the material inside out, and can give you specialist knowledge of the subject matter.

Our own collection covers archeological sites, excavations and ruins, pyramids, statues and monuments, sculptures, murals, calendars, codices and manuscripts, musical instruments, costumes, arts and crafts, food and farming, everyday artefacts, ceremonies, jewellery, and much more.

Here's what others have said:

Mexicolore replies: In principle we’re delighted to help. In practice much will depend on which image(s) you specifically want to use. Just because an image is on our website doesn’t mean we have the authority to allow a third party to use it, so it’s quite possible we won’t be able to help if the image in question isn’t one of our own. Please can you indicate which image(s) and we’ll let you know if we can help.
Mexicolore replies: Images from codices it’s unlikely we can licence to you, but we have several general photos of agaves that you’re welcome to use. We’ll contact you direct for specific requests...
Mexicolore replies: You don’t! We don’t have an online picture library, though there are large numbers on the Aztecs site...
Mexicolore replies: With regards to pictures, probably your best bet is to browse through some of the links we have in our Aztec Links section - a good start would be Mike Ruggeri’s Aztec World site, link here -
In terms of more kids story books on the Aztecs, try The Flame of Peace by Deborah Nourse Lattimore.
Mexicolore replies: This isn’t a website for general info on Mexico as a country. You should try sites like MexicoConnect, Latin America Bureau, or the site of the Mexican government itself. And/or check out our general Mexico links (see l/h menu).
Mexicolore replies: We don’t have a glossy, easy-to-browse picture library: being a very small, specialist outfit we work on a much more personal basis. You’ll need to do one of two things: either browse our main Aztecs website (packed with images) and/or contact us and ask us what you’re looking for. Cheers!
