Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit the Getty Conservation Institute with videographer Kirk Zamieroski.
This is a cool video he made about the photo conservation research that takes place in the GCI’s Los Angeles laboratories.
It features the GCI’s Art Kaplan talking about a few of the 100+ different photo-making processes (wowsers!) used since the dawn of photography.
PS: ….And if you want to know why some old photos have a brownish “sepia” look, check out this piece about the research of GCI’s Dusan Stulik and Tram Vo.
