EMULSION. NEW PUBLICATION BY APF

The Archeology of Photography Foundation presents its latest publication, EMULSION. Over eighty illustrations – archival photographs and selected contemporary works presented in the book tell the story of deterioration, operations performed by artists, and the materiality of photography. This subjective selection allows us to see how photographs described as “objects for conservation” take abstract forms and visually come across as something more than just a testimony of time. The book, however, goes beyond aestheticizing the damages – texts by Marta Przybyło-Ibadullajev and Sławomir Sikora, as well as the inspiring descriptions by Monika Supruniuk that introduce the reader to the problems of preventive conservation, offer a theoretical reflection on the materiality of photography.
