I launched the World Religions Photo Library to fill a gap in the market in 1992. It started with relevant images of Islam following my visits to 35 Muslim countries and following an invitation to other photographers to join,our stock increased to 10,000 photos within a few years. What makes World Religions stand out from other agencies, is that we specialise in the sensitive issue of people practising their chosen faith and performing any associated rites of passage. Contributing photographers in India, Asia, Africa and in the UK have helped build our reputation as one of the world’s leading faith libraries. We are represented by the Bridgeman Art Library, Corbis, Alamy, Photo 12 and Photographers Direct. Here are some of our images:

A Sikh baby is named after first letter of a word in the GGS
