Personal archives and the conditions in which materials are preserved in museums have greatly inspired Patrick Altman, who explores the role of photography in the collective memory, putting archival documents to new use to create different ways of reading them. His work is an emblematic extension of the search for meaning that has been a driving force for a significant generation of artists.
