Archeology of Photography Foundation (FAF) studies, works on, prepares and preserves archives of Polish photographers. It was founded in 2008 and today takes care of archives of 10 artists. Working with archives is complex: they are organized, digitalized and made accessible on-line. We also run a gallery, conduct research projects, organize exhibitions, workshops and lectures. We publish photo books and books dedicated to theory and history of photography. We work with contemporary artists and inspire them to approach historical photography in a new way and to look at the contemporary photography through photographic archives.
Exhibitions based on collections prepared by FAF were presented in places such as Centre Pompidou in Paris, Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne and on PhotoEspaña Festival in Madrid. Wojciech Zamecznik.
