History and Identification of Photographic Processes

About the Online Seminar:
The care of photographic collections presents special challenges. Knowledge of photographic processes, the materials used and their appearance is the first stage in understanding their care, and is also essential for appreciating some of their visual qualities.

In this online seminar, Susie will take you through the history and identification of the most common photographic processes which are likely to make up the majority of the photographs in collections.

This seminar will enable you to understand and identify photographs in a collection you might work with or manage, so that you can go on to understand any care that might be required.

About the speaker:
Susie Clark is an accredited paper and photographic conservator and consultant, and winner of the Museums and Galleries Commission Jerwood Conservation Award for Research and Innovation for her work on wet collodion positives.
