The process of researching a photographic collection is a subtle negotiation of understandings: the practice of acquiring and documenting photographs, the dialogue between digital and analogue format, the controlled environment of preservation, as well as conversation, accidents and mere chance encounters confronted with and within the space housing the collection.
Over the course of two weeks, London-based artist paula roush created work informed by her readings of the photographic collections at the Arab Image Foundation and her practice as an artist working with found photographs in both print and installation.
