From 1974, the Photo Library took on the mammoth task of systematically photographing student project work at the end of each academic year. This was established by Alvin Boyarsky, then AA Chairman, as he wanted to show that AA student work was intrinsically valuable and worth recording for the same reason the Projects Review book was published annually from that time. This work continued and expanded over the years, and from 2004 moved over to digital. The whole collection of images provides a unique resource including images of the student work of almost all of the celebrated alumni of the AA from 1974 until now.
