Focusing on Photographs: Identification and Preservation in Philadelphia, PA
Historical records of people and places, art photography, family snapshots, and corresponding negative printing plates and films are in the collections of every museum, library and archive. The omnipresence of photographic media belies the complexity and variety of techniques used to create these images. From the earliest cased Daguerreotypes and ambrotypes to tintypes, hand-colored silver gelatin prints, Polaroids, and contemporary back-lit polyester transparencies, the variety of photographic processes, supports, and housings require collections managers to have a unique set of knowledge and skills for proper identification and care. Photographs are accessed by researchers, duplicated for publication, and placed on exhibition, creating additional preservation challenges.
This two-day program will focus on the fundamentals of identifying and caring for photographic collections. Using lecture and hands-on demonstrations, topics will be intertwined over the course of the program to give participants a holistic view of identifying photographic materials, caring for these collections, developing appropriate handling procedures, and establishing safe storage environments.
The program is intended for collections care staff responsible for photographic collections, such as librarians, archivists, curators, collections managers, stewards of historic house museums, and records managers.
