Source Archive Season

Tying in neatly with our next FORUM event on Thursday 26th April, Source Photographic Review are having a three-month season of Archive-related events. This special season will include seven new short films, extended audio interviews and a dedicated archive issue of Source Magazine.

The films and interviews will be published on the Source website every week from the beginning of March.The films will range from stories of individual photographers, like the Jo Spence and the John Blakemore Archives, to specialist collections like that of London Zoo, which contains photographs of extinct animalsunavailable anywhere else and local collections like the local newspaper the Newtownards Chronicle. Also featuring will be the Archive of Modern Conflict, the Royal Anthropological Institute and archive conservator Susie Clark. For collections on a global scale we will be speaking to the British Library Endangered Archives project, Getty Images and Magnum Photos.

To kick off the Source Photographic Archives Season, you are invited to submit your favourite photographic image - from an online archive - to the Source Facebook Competition page. The editors will select their favourites from the entries to win various prizes, such as personal archive tours. Get your found archive image up by Thursday 10th May, 2012 to win.
