Care and Identification of Color Photographs - Sold Out

Presented in Partnership with Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC)
Thank You to the Library of Virginia for hosting

This workshop will provide an introduction to the care and identification of color photographs, with a primary emphasis on twentieth and twenty-first century materials. We will begin with a brief history of the development of color photography and common color processes, including screen plate color, dye transfer and chromogenic development. The various printing techniques for digital images including inkjet, dye sublimation and electrophotography will be discussed, as well as care and preservation of color photographs with particular attention given to the unique qualities that distinguish color photographs from black and white ones. The day would not be complete without covering tips for reading and researching photographs and a visit to the Library of Virginia's collection.
