As this year marks the 100th anniversary of the Passing of Abdu’l-Baha, a number of friends have asked me where they can find high-quality images of Abdu’l-Baha that they can use legally (without copyright restrictions) for their commemorations and activities.
The Baha’i World Centre has created a wonderful library of downloadable high-quality images called the Baha’i Media Bank, which “provides photographs for download, intended for non-commercial purposes only.” Copyright information and how the photos can be used is found on their “Legal Information” page — which we definitely recommend reading carefully.
On the Baha’i Media Bank, you’ll find a section of 40 photographs dedicated to Abdu’l-Baha and His Shrine.
Farzam Sabetian has created a website called Luminous Spot which features high resolution photographs of Baha’i Holy Places, including the House of the Master in Haifa, that can be used. Farzam explains why he created the site and how he hopes the images will be used in this Baha’i Blog interview: LuminousSpot.com – An Incredible Website of Baha’i Photographs
So just to recap, here are 4 great places to find images of Abdu’l-Baha, or relating to Him, that are high quality and that can be used freely:
We hope this helps you with your personal, community or neighbourhood commemorations of the Life of Abdu’l-Baha.
