Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Icon Photographic Materials Group, Tru Vue and The National Archives, U.K. are delighted to announce an evening lecture by Professor Debra Hess Norris:
I’ve Just Seen a Face: The Preservation of our Global Photographic Heritage
Photograph and film collections are held in museums, libraries, archives and private homes all over the world: they document our global heritage. These materials are deteriorating owing to exposure to poor environmental conditions, inadequate storage, and natural disasters. During this presentation, Debra will introduce the fundamental properties and care of photographic print and negative collections and address why their preservation is vital and relevant.
The lecture is aimed at conservators, historians, curators, photographers, artists and collection managers as well as interested non-specialists. The talk will be followed by a drinks reception.
Date and time: Tuesday 10th July 2018, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Location: St Bride Foundation, Bridewell Hall, 14 Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London EC4Y 8EQ
Prices: £5 for Icon members; £10 for non-members (wine, beer and nibbles included).
