Rescate Archivos War El Salvador

Rescate Archivos War El Salvador is a historical photography archive and center which operates under the mission of rescuing historical and collective memory. Created in the 1980s, this center houses contemporary and historical photos of the war in El Salvador, available to browse and purchase online. Students and filmmakers covering issues in the region will find this site to be an excellent resource, and can collaborate with the photographers to find the exposure and images needed. Go to the "Archivo" tab to find the Historical Archive, as well as a "FLMN" leftist party in El Salvador, and a "Social Movement," "Environment" album. The site also features an album on the Samburu culture in Northern Kenya. They have an Instagram feed as well. En Español: El Centro de la Fotografía de la Fundación Latitudes, surge ante la necesidad de rescatar diferentes materiales y trabajos fotográficos con alto valor histórico y para la conservación de la memoria histórica y colectiva, reconociendo los logros creativos de los fotógrafos anónimos que captaron la historia bajo un alto riesgo, y como un homenaje a los protagonistas, testigos formidables, que con audacia e inspiración colectiva, se constituyeron en guardianes de la memoria a través de la despiadada, fría y calculadora “mirada a través del lente”.
