Care of Photographic Collections II
Instructor: Gary Albright
Date: September 20-22, 2018
This course will focus on the importance of conservation assessments as a preservation tool for photograph collections. Participants will visit a nearby institution to examine photographs and access preservation needs. In preparation for this assessment, it will be necessary to review applicable material from Care of Photographs I, such as the identification of photographic processes, their deterioration, and their preservation. During the assessment participants will access storage and environmental conditions, examine how the collection is used, and them set conservation priorities. The course will also address several related conservation issues: surface cleaning of photographs in preparation for exhibition, the proper mounting of photographs for exhibition, and the history, identification, and deterioration of color photographs.
