KunstWorks was happy to co-host American Photography Archives Group West’s inaugural seminar. Alla Efimova, Melanie Light, and Alan Selsor chaired the committee to recruit a stellar line up of speakers—curators, photography archive managers, and attorneys—to address the most important topics in advancing the legacies of contemporary photographers. It was a busy day of presentations on photography archives and collections, issues in photographers’ legacy planning, and lively discussions. We are planning engaging events and workshops throughout the year, and look forward to the next year’s seminar in the Fall of 2019.
APAG is a non-profit membership organization to support photographers' archives, working photographers, and photographic archivists. Its mission is to help to preserve, document, and exhibit historic photography of the 20th and 21st centuries. Throughout the year APAG meetings provide a supportive and lively forum for exchanging experience and knowledge with others who manage archives and the legacies of modern and contemporary photographers.
APAG West is a new affiliate to extend the same educational and professional opportunities for members in California and the Western States.
