The Photographic Archive of the Benaki Museum is organising an intensive five-day seminar on the preservation and management of photographic collections, to be held in October 2005 at the Piraios Street Annexe of the Benaki Museum (138 Piraios Street, Athens, Greece).

The seminar is intended for archivists, curators, collectors, conservators and photographers who care for, handle or study photographic collections. The speakers include leading figures from the field of photographic conservation, preservation management, and digital imaging. These include Anne Cartier-Bresson, Luis Nadeau, James Reilly, Grant Romer, Mike Ware, Henry Wilhelm, Mark McCormick-Googhart and others.
