A preservation assessment of a collection of 4,500 photographs dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, 1,500 objects representing photographic processes (such as photo transfer screen prints and glass lantern slides), and 372 vintage or antique cameras.  Highlights of the collection include prints from Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, and Paul Strand; a catalog of photojournalistic images taken by National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry, photo-journalist Kate Brooks, and documentary filmmaker Louie Palu; daguerreotype portraits from the 1880s; and photographs from the revolution and early post-revolution periods in Cuba from 1955 to 1970.

Support from the National Endowment for the Humanities will fund three primary activities for the Southeast Museum of Photography (SMP) Preservation Assessment Project: • A formal assessment of the photographs and photographic objects from the museum’s 4,500 piece collection by a professional conservator of photographs. • In consultation with a professional conservator of photographs, the creation of a long-term preservation strategy for existing materials and future accessions. • In consultation with a professional conservator of photographs, the creation of a list of appropriate archival collections materials to reinforce existing collection materials and to support the care of future acquisitions. Through these activities, SMP aims to become better stewards of its cultural artifacts ensuring the photographs and photographic materials in the museum’s care can be preserved and maintained in accordance with the highest standards for future generations.
