When you close your eyes and think of the word “archive”….what do you see? Maybe grainy black and white films, or sitting in front of a microfiche machine scrolling through old periodicals. More importantly, what do you feel? Looking back at any institution’s history is bound to stir up negative feelings, but that isn’t the goal of archivist and photographer Deyane (Dee-yawn) Moses.
