Welcome to The Photo Vault
A journey into Vernacular Photography, archives, collecting and photo books. The Photo Vault steps into a hidden world filled with forgotten snapshots, dusty family albums, and gems of visual history to be uncovered. Join us as we embark on an exhilarating tour into the heart of collecting, curating and creating artworks with archival materials around the globe.
Our host, Lukas Birk, takes you on a voyage filled with exclusive interviews featuring renowned artists who draw inspiration from vernacular photography, collectors who have dedicated their lives to amassing incredible troves of images, and curators who curate exhibitions that bridge the gap between past and present. We will dive into obscure archives and discuss at length with those behind the making of photobooks, exhibitions and historical narratives.
