Citing an Image Taken From a Book
How you cite images on your reference list depends on the source in which you found them. If the image you're citing is in a book or other print collection, cite the entire book on your reference list in the following format:
Author Lastname, First Initial(s). (Year). Title of book: Any subtitles. Publisher Location: Publisher Name.
Here's an example:
Muir, R. (1980). The English village. Over Wallop, UK: Thames & Hudson.
Citing a Book From a Gallery or the Web
To cite a photo from a gallery or museum on your reference list, directly include the name of the artist and the location of the exhibit in your citation:
Artist Lastname, First Initial(s). (Work Date). Title of photo [Photograph]. Gallery location: Gallery name.
Kent, C. (1976). Man with cape [Photograph]. New York, NY: Guggenheim Museum.
Photographs taken from the Web include the same information, but replace exhibit information with the Web URL. The photo is also classified as an "online image" instead:
Gutierrez, R. (n.d.). Jungle reclaimed [Online image]. Retrieved from http://www.mexicanpictures.com/archives/2005/06/jungle-reclaimed.html.
You can use "n.d." in place of the year if you can't locate the date information for the photo you are citing.
When you describe the contents of a photo in text, provide a citation to your source. In the case of a photo in a book, reference it with the name of the author, year of publication and the page on which the photo appears:
The old building's sack hoist shows that it used to be a mill (Muir, 1980, p. 88).
To cite a gallery or Web image in text, include the artist's name and the year of the photo:
The man ascends at a 45° angle, backlit by the sun (Kent, 1976).
If date is not available, include "n.d." in the citation:
The vines and trees of Angkor Wat have begun to eat away at the stone (Gutierrez, n.d.).
