Photography Conservation

The Hispanic Society of America

The Society holds 176,000 photographs, as well as a collection of 15,000 negatives taken by Hispanic Society photographers on various expeditions to Spain and Latin America. This collection presents several urgent needs for conservation. A preliminary survey was conducted in 2007 by the Advanced Residency Program at the George Eastman House, which identified several areas of concern: the daguerreotypes of the Philippines; a section of rare and old photographs; and the film negatives. The proposed initiative will focus on preserving the negatives in standard upright 20 cubic feet freezers.
