Gil Pasternak provides consultations on photographic materiality in a digital context at Kiryat Tivon’s Library and Memorial Centre, Israel

On 11 March 2019 Gil Pasternak visited the Library and Memorial Centre in Kiryat Tivon (Haifa District, Israel) where he met with community documentarists and contributors of photographic cultural heritage. Learning about their work methods and the expectations they have of their growing community’s archive of historical family photographs, Gil provided individual consultations on how to find and evaluate the historically informative qualities of family photographs as material objects, considering among other things what steps need to be taken in preparation for their digitisation and continued preservation.
