Personal Photograph Preservation

Stephanie Watkins, a conservator specializing in the care of art and historic materials on paper, will speak at the Georgia Archives on Friday March 10, 2017 at 12:00pm, as part of our free Lunch and Learn lecture series.

Watkins will present on the preservation issues surrounding printed photographic materials:  how to handle, care, and store your family photographs for the best survival.  As we now also collect our collective visual memories digitally, she will briefly discuss preservation options with electronic media.

Watkins has over thirty years of experience, including working for institutions such as the University of Texas at Austin, the Missouri State Archives and Local Records Program, The International Museum of Photography, and the Library of Congress, as well as several businesses in the private sector.  She currently owns her own business, Watkins Conservation Services, LLC and is a Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation.

The program requires no registration and is free and open to the public.

The Georgia Archives is a unit of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and identifies, collects, manages, preserves, provides access to, and publicizes records and information of Georgia and its people and assists state and local government agencies with their records management. This work is done within the framework of the USG’s mission to create a more highly educated Georgia.
