Periodically, we incorporate more photographs which gradually enrich our holdings. These come from the Barcelona City Council fonds, individuals, photographers, businesses and other organisations
Our acquisitions policy gives preference to photographs of Barcelona and figures or events that help to reconstruct any period of the city’s history.
We also give priority to photographers from the city or who have carried out much of their professional activity here.
When we receive an offer of a donation, the first thing we do is assess how well preserved the photographs are and their content.
It is important to point out that we only accept originals, that is, camera originals and period or signature prints.
