About the Program:
This two-day masterclass course on the Identification and Care of Photographic Negatives offers an in-depth introduction to the preservation of negatives, focusing particularly on their identification, deterioration, and care.
The participants will have the exceptional opportunity to examine several examples of 19th and early 20th century negatives selected by photograph conservator Sandra M. Petrillo from the important and valuable Photographic Archive of the AAR (in particular from the Parker, Askew, Moscioni and Van Deman collections).
After a brief introduction by Lavina Ciuffa on the specialized collection of art, archaeology and architecture photography conserved in this archive, attendees will learn how to recognize various historic photographic techniques and formats and will study the preservation problems associated with each one. The masterclass will also discuss storage concerns and preservation priorities, including environmental guidelines and proper care and handling.
This is a beginner to intermediate level workshop aimed at anyone who wishes to learn more about how to care for photographic negatives, such as curators, collection managers, exhibit preparations, cataloguers, archivists, photographers and collectors.
