Full archive of photos from Vatican II

You know the image, and most anyone with a website who writes about Vatican II uses it at some point. But who actually took the photo?

The photographer still remains anonymous, but it belongs to this amazing archive of official photos from Vatican II. (Click on “Galleria Fotografica” then “Fondo Giordani.”)

I guess it really happened.


  1. Thank you for this wonderful archive. Even in black and white the photographs are excellent. Whoever the photographer(s) were/was they are craftsmen/women of photojournalism:)
