We present the imaging observations made with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) of the Hubble Deep Field South. The field was imaged in four bandpasses: a clear CCD bandpass for 156 ks, a long-pass filter for 22?25 ks pixel-1 typical exposure, a near-UV bandpass for 23 ks, and a far-UV bandpass for 52 ks. The clear, visible image is the deepest observation ever made in the UV-optical wavelength region, reaching a 10 ? AB magnitude of 29.4 for an object of area 0.2 arcsec2. The field contains QSO J2233-606, the target of the STIS spectroscopy, and extends 50? ? 50? for the visible images, and 25? ? 25? for the ultraviolet images. We present the images, catalog of objects, and galaxy counts obtained in the field.
