Are you a Goth? Then you’re surely going to love our collection of images of English Gothic buildings, which we have recently added to RDID. The collection was photographed by RISD professor John Hendrix during the summer of 2009, and the images were optimized and cataloged by Visual Resources Center staff and our brilliant student workers. Eventually, the collection will consist of 629 images of Gothic buildings from all over England. At the moment, we have uploaded 114, but you can watch the collection grow during the next few weeks.

To access the John Hendrix English Gothic Collection, login to RDID with your RISD username and password. You can either see a slideshow with selected images of Gothic buildings, or do a search for the keyword Gothic – that will give you access to the entire collection.

We have been cataloging and uploading into RDID, the RISD Digital Image Database, a  fantastic collection of images of artwork by contemporary American artists. The works all featured in an exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Art in London in 2006, and they are a really varied group of paintings, installations, sculptures and photographs. In the words of the Royal Academy’s Secretary, “in this selection of the work of young American artists, each confronts not only their own fundamental questions, but also global poverty, inequality and population migration, not to mention the gigantic environmental problems that confront the world as a whole.” Have a look at this collection of images by logging into RDID with your RISD login, and clicking on Slideshows/U.S.A. Today. We hope you enjoy it!
