British Library

It was quite amazing to be privileged to see the entire archiving department at the British Library. I had a chance to see the hidden aspects of preserving valuable publications and manuscripts by a team of highly sophisticated individuals. It was clear that the work process of archiving tens of thousands of photographs was very repetitive and mundane. It requires a lot of focus and patience. The team are highly motivated and full of intrinsic energy and passion. Their mission was to create archive files to the best of their abilities – true art forms, as they said.

I was also extremely touched to have my cyanotype experimentation photographed and archived by the team. Thank you ever so much!
