Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Exhibition of paper negatives survey - response requested

I am currently writing an article on the history of the exhibition of paper negatives, to present in a conference late this year. One of my goals is to evaluate which light sources conservators are using, especially when the negatives are backlit.
Although it can be relatively easy to find information on exhibitions featuring paper negatives (in exhibition catalogs and/or in some online collection websites), there is less information available out there about how that was done. The published case studies are surely only a fraction of what is done in practice to exhibit these objects. That is why I ask for your contribution.
Please take a few minutes to answer ten questions about this theme, whether you have worked or seen an exhibition featuring paper negatives. The survey is available until April 30, 2017, on:

Feel free to share the link colleagues you think might be able to help as well.
If you have any comments or questions, please send an email to
Thank you in advance for participating.
