My workshops are targeted at people interested in archival family photography and such aspects as: memory, identity, history. Everyone is invited to come with their family photos – those of everyday life from our childhood or those of special holidays at grandma’s and grandpa’s, also those taken at home or in the photographer’s studio, and the photos from the black-and-white or colour photography era, and many others. We will select the most interesting ones, in the context of which we will share our memories. We will pay attention to how valuable family archives are and how these testimonies of past times are related to who we are now. We will also check how to renew old photo collections in a contemporary way. Individual photos will be copied and included in the unique exhibition in the gallery.
