Centre d’Art Archive collection consists of about ninety five thousands negatives and slides taken by Dominique Darr during her travels to Japan, Mexico, Turkey, Greece, Italy, African continent but mainly of an invaluable documentation on the development of Auroville since the 70’s.
Most media used by her were 35mm and 120mm negative films and 35mm colour slides. Additionally we have got a few thousands of argentic photo prints, most of them done by Dominique herself in Paris, as well as a dozen thousands of digital shots she took with her Nikon D300 that was her last contribution to the archive.
The archives also contains correspondence since 1973.
All the films and prints are stored in a cold room with a constant temperature and humidity control and adjustment.
A library of about 450 art books is available on site.
