The Conservation and Preservation of Photographs
Canterbury Museum Friends Talk
Photographs are meaningful if they are preserved and accessible. Mark Strange, who is the Senior Conservator of Photographs at the Alexander Turnbull Library, the documentary heritage collection within the National Library in Wellington, will speak about the treatment or repair of some of the damaged and decayed photographs in the Library collection.

He'll also discuss how the collection is preserved for all New Zealanders for generations to come. The principles of preservation can be applied to domestic collections as well and the talk will outline the important factors to ensure photographs have a long life-expectancy.
The public has increasing access to collections of photographs through digitisation and Mark will speak briefly about recent projects at the Library and at Puke Ariki in New Plymouth.
