Community Photo Library

Welcome to the Community Photo Library; brought to you as a public service by the Alaska Division of Community and Regional Affairs (DCRA).

DCRA recognizes the uniqueness of life in Alaska’s rural and urban communities. The Community Photo Library offers a glimpse into Alaska’s communities and lifestyle by providing images of places, people, cultural events, public facilities, landscapes, and other dimensions of community life.

All uses of these images must contain an appropriate photo credit and copyright notice. Information about the specific photo credit is noted in the photo description and date section, at the bottom of each thumbnail and at the individual community listing. To give proper photo credit to an image, print the copyright symbol and name in small letters next to the image or list it prominently elsewhere in the publication or presentation with the words "photo credit."
