Teaching a Methodology for Photographic Process Identification

The development of a series of workshops, webinars, and video tutorials on identifying historic and contemporary photographic processes, the critical first step in determining proper preservation care and treatment of photographic collections.

Image Permanence Institute (IPI) will provide a series of workshops, webinars, and video tutorials on photographic process identification. Images are fundamental to humanities scholarship. There is a critical need for the new generation of scholars, catalogers and curators to be able to recognize and contextualize pictorial objects. The project addresses a national audience and will provide important instruction and guidance derived from thirty years of IPI's research and educational experience. IPI has developed a structured process identification methodology and controlled vocabulary that starts from easily observable visual characteristics, and then connects with an exhaustive online resource for determination of process, date, relevance, and long-term care needs of pictorial objects. The workshops provide the vital element of first-hand experience with process examples and introduces the methodology and resources that IPI has developed.
