Care and Identification of Photographs (from daguerreotypes to digital) May 21-24, 2018
Location: This workshop is hosted by UCLA Library Special Collections (Los Angeles, CA)
What are the defining characteristics of individual photographic processes? How does environment affect the lives of photographic objects? In this 4-day intensive workshop, you will develop identification skills and knowledge about fine art and historic photographic processes, from the daguerreotype to digital prints. It will include study of color materials, and nitrate and acetate photographic films that pose preservation challenges. This workshop is intended for curators, collectors, archivists, collection managers, and anyone who studies or appreciates photographic prints.
The Academy of Certified Archivists (ACA), a certifying organization of professional archivists, will award 15 Archival Recertification Credits (ARCs) to eligible Certified Archivists (CAs) attending this workshop.
The American Society of Appraisers, the International Society of Appraisers, and the Appraisers Association of America will award 24 reaccreditation hours/professional development/continuing education credits for qualified appraisers attending this workshop.
