In this interview with Mary Engel and Penelope Dixon we discuss the creation of APAG, and the APAG Conference in New York, held at the International Center of Photography, during Fall 2014. The American Photography Archives Group (APAG) is an organization founded, and run by, Mary Engel, 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, you aren’t alone! If you are interested in photography, estate planning for artists, and preserving photography archives, listen in! Recorded at the International Center of Photography in New York City, in September 2014 by Harris Fogel.
