The Photo Archive Group and related links

The Photo Archive Group was founded in 1993 by two American photographers, Chris Riley and Doug Niven, as a project to clean, catalogue and print neglected and damaged negatives in the Tuol Sleng Museum archive in Kampuchea. After several years of energetic fund-raising and arduous restoration work, the Group succeeded in cleaning and cataloguing the entire collection. Occasionally, relatives or friends have recognized one of their own from the albums compiled by the Group. The museum supplies prints on request in such cases. (Currently The Photo Archive Group does not have a website.)
