Photographers’ Archives and Legacy Project

Since 2013, photographer Jem Southam has led the Photographers’ Archives and Legacy Project based at Plymouth University, a pioneering research project which aims to consider the many practical, personal, and cultural issues surrounding the archiving of photographers’ work.

This valuable project has already raised wider awareness of the issues involved in managing photographers’ archives and making them accessible, and in due course will provide advice and guidelines on best practice. First case studies with leading contemporary photographers Liz Hingley, Daniel Meadows and Mark Power can now be explored online, and I look forward to following the research project further over the next year.
