Many images within The Historic New Orleans Collection’s photographic holdings come from family collections, and we are regularly asked by patrons and members of the community how to best preserve their family photographs. This live online Q&A, hosted by Associate Curator Mallory Taylor, will feature two photography experts with backgrounds in preservation and conservation: Paul Sergeant, owner of Archival Heirloom, and Barbara Lemmen, Senior Photograph Conservator at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts. Each presenter will take questions from the webinar’s participants.
The south Louisiana climate offers numerous challenges to anyone hoping to preserve photographs. This webinar will focus on practical advice about best preservation practices. Admission is free, and registration is required. Details area available at www.hnoc.org
