In Africa, photographic collections old and new face many dangers, and some institutions lack the resources and knowledge to properly preserve these treasures. With the collaborative efforts of organizations committed to raising awareness of the value and significance of photography in Africa, ARTC Chair Debra Hess Norris helped create, "Preservation of Photography Patrimonial in Africa (3PA): West African Image Lab," a four-day workshop recently held in Benin, West Africa. The workshop combined theory and practice to preserve photograph collections in Africa, empowering participants with information, professional networks and advocacy skills.
