Speaker: Prof. Debra Norris, Chair, Department of Art Conservation, University of Delaware
Photographs connect the world. They are complex structures. Their final images, comprised of silver or platinum metal, pigments and organic dyes in cyan, yellow and magenta will fade and discolour over time. This presentation will address the basic structure of popular 19th and 20th century photographic processes, and provide practical guidance on long-term preservation. Tips on emergency response and recovery, proper storage and handling will also be offered.
