Current Issues in Photograph Conservation

The nature of photography is evolving. Rapid and transformative innovations in photography are both exciting and challenging for conservators. The profession needs to find ways to effectively share current knowledge and research to reach caretakers of these rapidly changing and growing collections.

The Current Issues in Photograph Conservation workshops series is designed primarily for mid-career conservators who work with photographic materials.

Instructors in the series are preeminent experts in the field. Through lectures, discussions, and practical work, they will elucidate the various aspects of a given topic throughout each intensive workshop.

Each annual workshop will focus on a topic relating to the contemporary conservation treatment of photographic materials.
