Photograph Preservation Workshop

Cultural heritage collections typically contain photographs. Join instructor, Stephen Fletcher, Photographic Archivist for UNC’s North Carolina Collection, at a workshop on February 6, 2023, to learn how to care for these important visual documents. The production of different technical formats across the nineteenth and twentieth 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.
