Issues in the Conservation of Photographs is the first publication to chronicle the emergence and systematic development of photograph conservation as a profession. In seventy-two essential texts from the nineteenth century to the present day, this anthology collects key writings that have influenced both the philosophical and the practical aspects of conserving photographic materials. The materials were carefully selected by the editors along with an advisory board of international experts and include some--particularly the lectures, memos, and letters--that have never been published.
Many of the topics--safe environmental parameters, silver image permanence, and proper treatment methods--have been debated since the introduction of photography. By promoting an understanding of these issues, this volume seeks to advance the education of rising conservation professionals, inspire new scholarship, and contribute to the field's ongoing evolution.
Debra Hess Norris is vice provost for graduate and professional education, chair of the Art Conservation Department, and professor of photograph conservation at the University of Delaware. Jennifer Jae Gutierrez is assistant professor in the Art Conservation Department at the University of Delaware.

“This selection of articles is excellent and clearly benefited from the wide range of professionals who contributed during the selection process.  Indeed, it is an achievement to have compiled such a comprehensive list of sources and then to have arranged them so coherently, seemingly without anything important omitted or misplaced.”—WAAC (Western Association for Art Conservation) Newsletter
