We present new photometric V-, R- and I-band data for the rich galaxy cluster AC 118 at . The new photometry covers an area of arcmin2, corresponding to Mpc2 ( km s-1 Mpc-1, and ). The data have been collected for a project aimed at studying galaxy evolution through the color-magnitude relation and the fundamental plane. We provide a catalogue including all the sources () detected in the cluster field. The galaxy sample is complete to mag (), mag () and mag (). We give aperture magnitudes within a fixed aperture of 4.4 arcsec and Kron magnitudes. We also give photometric redshifts for 459 sources for which additional U- and K-band photometry is available. We derive and discuss the V- and R-band luminosity functions. The catalogue, which is distributed in electronic form, is intended as a tool for studies in galaxy evolution.
