From 22 to 25 April 2014, international experts from ten different countries will be meeting in the city of Porto-Novo, Benin to discuss the preservation of African photography collections and archives.
Lack of adequate storage facilities, challenging environmental conditions and theft of valuable prints for international resales are a growing threat to Africa's photography archives.
The pilot workshop, titled West African Image Lab, aims to address these issues and develop solutions. The four-day event is organised by Resolution, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Africa's photographic legacy.
