What stories are hidden in the archives of photo studios? Located in the heart of Belsunce, a working-class neighborhood of Marseille, the photo studio was run by the Armenian-Cypriot Keussayan family between 1933­–2018 and served as a meeting point for migrants. It was a trove preserving personal memories and historical events, highlighting the often invisible human stories behind migration.

In the Curator's Tour, Boaz Levin guide visitors through a large part of the archive collection. He talks about the role of photo studios in visual culture, the relevance of (self-)representation and the challenges that can arise when working with archives and telling the stories of so-called vernacular photography.
