From Trash to Treasure: Loss, Value and the Photo Archive

Synopsis
Podcast. Catherine E. Clark (MIT) discusses the life cycle of anonymous photographic archives. Her key example is the revaluation and profit generation of an archive of amateur prints and albums collected in the 1980s by a French production company based in Marseille. They were used primarily for a show ‘Souvenirs, souvenirs’ that ran on ARTE in the 1980s. [24 minutes]
