"Archive, Photography and the Language of Administration offers a series of provocative snapshots that demonstrate how the seemingly clerical work of classifying images—through their formal arrangement, their archival description or their adornment with technical metadata—is an inherently productive and creative means of translating between image and text and code."

"Jane Birkin guides streams of thought through the ubiquitous archiving of post-digital culture. She unveils a liquid archive whose practices constantly remodel and reshape the malleable materials we hold over from the past, haunted by the interplay of languages, images and objects. Lucid and comprehensive, with new insights on every page, it not only reformulates again the thriving field of archive studies, but observes the currents that shape a whole, emergent cultural ecology."
