Description

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.

Debra Hess Norris is Professor of photograph conservation at the University of Delaware, and an internationally renowned author, teacher and lecturer.

Debra was recently awarded the 2018 Francis Alison Faculty Award, the University of Delaware's highest and most competitive honour for academics: http://www.udel.edu/udaily/2018/may/debra-hess-norris-alison-award/
