Interview – Mary Engel and Grayson Dantzic discuss APAG (American Photography Archives Group) and the second annual APAG Conference held at I.C.P. in New York City

In this interview with Mary Engel and Executive Vice President Grayson Dantzic we discuss the creation of APAG, and the 2nd Annual APAG Conference in New York, held at the International Center of Photography, in September 2015. The American Photography Archives Group (APAG) is an organization created by President and Founder Mary Engel, the daughter of Ruth Orkin and Morris Engel. The primary mission of APAG has been to offer a forum for living artists and guardians of archives to come together to discuss and learn about all aspects of archive management. The conference featured leading curators, archivists, librarians, foundations, and photographers on the topics of preservation, strategy, and contemporary concerns and approaches.

With so many families of photographers and professionals trying to understand how best to pass on their legacy, and what to do with an inherited archive, and a myriad of approaches and options, the task can be daunting. If you are interested in photography, estate planning, leaving a legacy, and preserving a photographic archive, then listen in! Recorded at the International Center of Photography in New York City, in September 2015 by Harris Fogel.
