In the picture 25 years of panos pictures


Panos Pictures began in 1986 as a small independent for-profit photo agency specialising in environmental issues. It was founded and partly owned by environmental charity Panos London (the Panos Institute's London office) out of its photo archive. Adrian Evans joined as director in 1990 and spent five years overseeing its expansion.

Panos London closed in 2013. The Panos Institute, a sister organisation of Panos Pictures, has been renamed Panos Network, a network of five member institutes.

Panos Pictures has at any time a group of twenty of its photographers, called Panos Profile, whom it represents more comprehensively than its wider group of photographers, which it calls Panos Network (this Panos Network should not be confused with the sister organisation described above).
