The Photography and Historical Image Centre of Guadalajara (CEFIHGU) was created by the Guadalajara Provincial Council to ensure the preservation and social spread of the photographic and cinematographic heritage present in the province of Guadalajara.
The Centre has different kinds of facilities and equipment. We have deposits specially conditioned for the preservation of original material. Beside the deposits there are the galleries, where we make didactic exhibitions about the world of photography and cinema. We also show a selection of the best pictures and movies from our archives. The technical work areas are equipped with computer facilities suitable to decode pictures as well as the means to analyze, reproduce and, eventually, restore them. There exists a room prepared for studies that allows investigators and general public access to different collection catalogues. There also exists an audiovisual room that helps enjoy the projections and virtual exhibitions that have been programmed previously.
The Centre is open to future incorporations of all those collections and batches of pictures whose owners want to leave in our centre according to the established procedures. At the moment, we are receiving several Photograph Collections of which some are donations and others voluntary deposits that we have managed and preserved
