The TAFOS/PUCP Photographic Archive originated in late 1998, moment in when the director and founder of TAFOS, Thomas Müller, decided to donate all the photographic and documentary files from the project to the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú - Faculty of Science and Arts of Communication.

During the next three years, the authorities from the University requested the Faculty of Science and Arts of Communication, the organization, stabilization and cataloguing of the donations, and also the construction of a specially designed space made for the appropriate conservation of the material.

During the 2001, the negatives were cleaned and, that same year, for the visualization on the web site, the pictures from the project, started being scanned. The TAFOS/PUCP Photographic Archive is open for anyone who wants to use it for teaching, research, promotion and mounting of exhibitions.




The most important tasks TAFOS/PUCP is doing right now are the dissemination, conservation, maintenance, scanning and systematization of all the pictures and written documents. The initiation of new workshops ended in 1998 with the closure of TAFOS Project. From time to time, some group discussions and exhibitions of the archive materials are done.
