2021 summer digitization project

In 2021, we officially launched the CNE Foundation’s “CNE Archives Project” – an initiative aimed to digitize and preserve more than 64,000 at-risk archival photo negatives in the Alexandra Studio collection.

Through funding and individual donations received, we were able to bring on two archives digitization interns last summer. During their time with us, the team scanned and rehoused thousands and thousands of photo negatives in the CNE archival collection that were at risk due to Vinegar Syndrome. This causes them to crack and lose their content. In total, the team scanned 4,389 negatives and rehoused 8,566 negatives.

We are grateful for the financial contributions from funders and individual donors, which enabled this important work.
