      Association Abbas Photos has been created to protect, preserve and promote Abbas’s rich photographic oeuvre.

      With full access to the photographer’s complete personal archives including original photographic prints, contact sheets, work prints, writings, notebooks, correspondence, contracts, publications, collateral (posters, postcards, brochures, invitation cards), films and videos, the Association continues to give a voice to Abbas’s work through ongoing cultural projects.

      It is in a unique position to provide the context of his work through documents that retrace the history of a photograph, from its creation to its publication and preservation. While giving support to Magnum Photos which continues to manage the distribution of Abbas’s archival images.

      Our vision and goals

      Conservation and Research
