Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online course: Photographic Chemistry for Preservation

The Photographic Chemistry course was initiated by FAIC in 2015, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This series explores key elements of photographic chemistry that are essential to understanding the nature of silver-based analog photographs, their creation, and their deterioration mechanisms. These topics are critical for photograph conservators, but also of interest to photographers, artists, collectors, and other photography enthusiasts. This series of online self-study modules includes video lectures and quizzes on specific topics in the chemistry of photography. Each section contains about 10 – 20 units and each unit includes a video lecture of 3 – 10 minutes in length and a brief self-assessment quiz. The cost of the course includes access to a discussion forum where participants can ask an expert questions about the content. Study at your own pace and repeat sections as needed!

The fee for each section is $19, which provides access to:

  • Unlimited viewing of the online video lectures
  • Access to unit quizzes
  • Access to the discussion forum

The following sections will be open to participants October 20 – March 20. Registrants will have access to all units in the sections they paid for during this time. Participants can access the modules on their own schedule and work at their own pace. Participants can register at any time before or during this period.

Section 1: Light Sensitivity of Silver Salts
Section 2: The Latent Image
Section 3: Chemical and Spectral Sensitization (delayed opening: modules will be available by November 14)

Additional sections will become available in summer 2017. Sections 1 – 3 will remain accessible to paid participants into the future.
