Although the main focus of this 4-day course is the identification of the most common modern photograph processes and finishing techniques, general preservation policy surrounding modern photograph collections will also be discussed. The processes will be covered in theory, and during practical sessions participants will examine the Fotorestauratie Atelier’s broad study collection under magnification and using different lighting to distinguish between processes. 
Participants will learn about the material and technique surrounding each of the photograph processes, as well as the visual characteristics that distinguish one process from the other. The differences between true silver gelatine prints and other “black and white” processes will be discussed, and participants will learn to distinguish between the various color photograph processes such as, chromogenic, dye transfer, dye diffusion, silver dye bleach photography and inkjet prints, as well as the finishing techniques associated with each of these. 


The following points will be discussed:

  • Brief history of modern photography
  • Gelatin Silver prints and paper & toning variations
  • Chromogenic prints
  • Silver dye bleach prints
  • Dye transfer prints
  • Dye diffusion prints
  • Inkjet prints
  • Dye sublimation (digital) prints
  • Modern finishing techniques
