Our customers love us

Alamy responded effectively to all my requests, for our needs for visuals from the art world, and for very specialised current events in our museum. A small, efficient and discreet team, not commercially invasive. Very attractive rates. The assistant curator of our upcoming exhibition has also contacted Alamy, indicating a confidence in the quality.
