About the Beaford Archive
The James Ravilious Beaford Archive was created in the 1970s and 1980s as a record, and celebration of the way of life and culture of the North Devon. The photographs in the archive serve equally as a body of work of a skilled fine art photographer, and also as a unique historical document and archive of a place, a time, and a people.

The images available on this website have been created digitally from the original negatives. Original fine art prints made by James Ravilious or under his supervision also exist, as do prints made posthumously by other printers, digital scans of original prints, and other works which are not part of the Beaford Archive. Some of the latter can be viewed and purchased at www.jamesravilious.com.

This web site is owned and operated by Beaford Arts. All of the content featured or displayed on this web site, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, photographs images ("content") and software is owned by Beaford Arts and its content providers.
