Anne Cartier-Bresson, Henri Cartier-Bresson’s niece, Cultural Heritage Curator, Director of the Atelier de Restauration et de Conservation des Photographies de la Ville de Paris, author of numerous books on the subject, was invited to speak about New Challenges in Photographic Conservation at PCA on January 19, 2016.
The field of photographic conservation emerged in the 1970s, driven by a new awareness among cultural institutions of the value of the medium and its fragility. The discipline evolved gradually out of a heightened understanding of photographic objects, leading to the development of specific treatment methods, training courses, protocols and international professional networks. However, since its inception, the discipline of photographic conservation has undergone constant transformation due to the evolution of shooting and printing techniques, and increased public interest in photography. This talk will explore the challenges faced by curators and conservators in the wake of the digital revolution, and will take stock of recent developments in the field.
