New Photograph Preservation Workshop!

Cultural heritage collections typically contain photographs. Join instructor, Stephen Fletcher, Photographic Archivist for UNC’s North Carolina Collection, at Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst, September 13 to learn how to care for these important visual documents. The production of different technical formats across the 19th and 20th centuries involved varying chemical processes. As they age, those formats require different preservation strategies. This workshop is an introduction to identifying a variety of types of photographs: daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, hand-colored silver gelatin prints, contemporary color, and digital photographs. Instruction will also focus on preservation methods and materials for proper handling, exhibition, and storage.
