A Study in Preventative Photographic Conservation and Digital Preservation

The purpose of this project is to compare the treatment and preservation of film photography with the preservation of digital files. I will be interning at the Center for Creative Photography under two advisors, one in conservation and one in archives. The first half of my project will focus on monitoring environmental changes, like the rate of decay of film negatives due to temperature and/or humidity. The second half will focus on the proper storage and organization of both digital files and negatives.
