H.P. Lovecraft Photo Gallery

This page includes all known photographs of Lovecraft in approximate chronological order. John D. Haefele’s “Chronological Listing of H. P. Lovecraft Photographs Where Reproductions Have Been Published” [The Fantastic Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, p. 150–53; updated in Hesperia v. 14, n. 1 (2007)] was of considerable help in preparing this list.

Please note that The H. P. Lovecraft Archive does not own originals of any of these photographs and cannot supply high-resolution copies of any of them. However, the John Hay Library at Brown University owns the few photographs whose descriptions are followed by an asterisk; to contact them regarding those photos, you may email them at hay@brown.edu.
