Description

“Torn, Folded, Curled” was produced in the context of the research project “Found Photo Foundation: sourcing from the Arab Image Foundation.”
From 22 June to 2 July 2015, the Found Photo Foundation was in residency at the Arab Image Foundation, Beirut, with the support of the Centre for Media Research (London South Bank University).

This residency was primarily focused at sharing archival methodologies used by the Found Photo Foundation in its exhibitions and publications and explore the potential of the Arab Image Foundation’s photographic collections as source for photobook publishing.

Different types of archival organisation in public photographic archives were investigated, as well as their translation into book structures.
Working with “torn, folded, curled” images— a term used at the Arab Image Foundation to categorise heavily damaged photographs that require special care in storage and preservation— also meant developing specific strategies to account for themes of war and memory in photobook sequencing.
