Over the course of the last 10 years the use of the archive within contemporary photographic and artistic practice has grown continually. Bolstered by the proliferation of new digital tools alongside the rapid development of access and transmission that they enable, artists and educators have increasingly turned to the past not only for inspiration or research but also as source of raw materials and conceptual parameters. Alongside these new approaches archives continue to be important sites for the discovery of obscured or orphaned images that are subsequently deployed to enrich the social and historical understanding of the medium.
