The Photo Vault: Annebella Pollen

Research output: Non-textual outputDigital or Visual Products


The Photo Vault, founded by Austrian photographer, collector and publisher Lukas Birk, is described as 'a journey into Vernacular Photography, archives, collecting and photo books. The Photo Vault steps into a hidden world filled with forgotten snapshots, dusty family albums, and gems of visual history to be uncovered. Join us as we embark on an exhilarating tour into the heart of collecting, curating and creating artworks with archival materials around the globe. Lukas Birk takes you on a voyage filled with exclusive interviews featuring renowned artists who draw inspiration from vernacular photography, collectors who have dedicated their lives to amassing incredible troves of images, and curators who curate exhibitions that bridge the gap between past and present. We will dive into obscure archives and discuss at length with those behind the making of photobooks, exhibitions and historical narratives.'
In November 2023, Lukas Birk interviewed Annebella Pollen about her interest in rejected photographs and photographic ephemera as prevailing themes across her research and writing. The resulting 45 minute podcast, episode 6 of the series, was launched in New Year 2024 via YouTube, Spotify and Apple.
