A Fun Video About Photo Conservation And The History of Photo-making

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. Enjoy! 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.
