Group Description

A mailing list dedicated to the history and conservation of photographic materials.

WHAT IS WELCOME ON THIS LIST: Anything related to the conservation and restoration of photographic materials, including discussions on technical provenance, authentication, dating, identification, history of reproduction technologies or products, and the chemical or physical treatments of artifacts.

Discussions of procedures (e.g., photomacrography) involving computers, films and digital cameras used in the identification and authentication of photographs are also welcome. This could also include announcements of meetings, conferences, courses, workshops, new books and book reviews. Authors and publishers interested in having their books reviewed are encouraged to contact the list owner, Luis Nadeau (http://photoconservation-encyclopedia.blogspot.com). English is the primary language of this list but other languages may also be used.

WHAT IS NOT WELCOME: Digital "restoration" and detailed how-to procedures of historic or "alt-photo" processes are better left to other lists. SPAMMERS: All new members are moderated until they have posted pertinent messages to this list.

DISCLAIMER: Comments and advice posted on PHOTOCONSERVATION are assumed to be in good faith but do not engage the responsibility of the list-owner. Readers must be aware that techniques and procedures may represent a risk of damage to original photographs and/or the health of the individual(s) performing them. They should only be attempted by trained professionals working in a properly equipped laboratory with all necessary safety means at their disposal.
