Archive Fever, ISSP 2018

November 4, 2018 at 10:24 pm

This year, I was invited to the International Summer School of Photography in Latvia, to produce and run a workshop based around imagery and the Archive, entitled Archive Fever.

 

In its work to maintain one memory at the expense of another, the archive not only preserves and curates memory, but buries it as well. Work with archives can bring to light that which remains hidden, and raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction, truth and evidence. Taking the history of Kuldīga as a starting point, the participants explored local archives and added their own material to create personal photographic projects.”

 

To view the completed participant projects, as well as the results of workshops by other practitioners such as Salvatore Vitale, Sarker Protik, Jason Fulford and more, click here.
