Obsidian Images is the premier image web application showing the world the Black Diaspora. All of the images on this site were taken by Black Photographers; part of Black Legacy Press or Black Archive Collections.

Images licensed through our web portal afford each of these entities to earn revenue as they retain ownership of their treasures.

From photographers and illustrators around the world, these are our images from our past to our present. Through stories, digital gallery exhibits, licensing and permission, we will make available our own stories, the way we see ourselves, through our own eyes.
