Workshop: Identification and Preservation of Photographic Collections
Wednesday, June 6, 2018
Presenter: Barbara Lemmen, Senior Photograph Conservator, Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts
Photographic media are ubiquitous within the collections of archives and libraries. From daguerreotypes and color prints to negatives on glass and plastic film, photographic collections require a unique set of knowledge and skills for proper preservation. This workshop is designed to help attendees recognize the most common photographic processes and formats of the 19th and 20th centuries typically found in collections and address their special needs to ensure longevity. Environmental parameters, materials and approaches to storage, and safe handling will be discussed and reinforced through hands-on group activities. Examples of photographic materials and housing will be available for examination.
