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.

Images used for all purposes must be credited appropriately. Information about the specific photo is noted alongside each thumbnail in the individual community listing. To give proper photo credit to an image, use the suggested citation prominently in the publication or presentation, "Photo Credit: Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development; Division of Community and Regional Affairs’ Community Photo Library."
