Event Description

Join us in the National Library of Ireland for an event exploring the need for preservation of digital photography in the 21st century.

Keynote speaker Matthew Burgess is Digital Collections Analyst at the State Library of New South Wales, Australia. Matthew will talk about his work in digital preservation and how his career path has led him from photography, to digitisation and currently to digital preservation. The event will also include lightning talks highlighting the different roles played by those involved in the life of the photograph including photographers (creators), curators, arts officers, photo historians and preservers, and will finish with a discussion on the need for preservation of 21st century photography, and any collaborative next steps that could be taken to achieve this.
