Photographs of the past : process and preservation by Bertrand Lavédrine( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, interest in old photographs has grown significantly among a broad public, from collectors, conservators, and archivists to amateurs seeking to preserve precious family albums. Although the medium of photography is barely 150 years old, its relatively brief history has witnessed the birth of a wide range of photographic processes, each of which poses unique conservation challenges." "This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the practice of photograph preservation, bringing together more information on photographic processes than any other single source. Introductory chapters cover issues of terminology; the rest of the book is divided into three parts: positives, negatives, and conservation. Each chapter focuses on a single process - daguerreotypes, albumen negatives, black-and-white prints, and so on - providing an overview of its history and materials and tracing the evolution of its technology. This book will serve as an irreplaceable reference work for conservators, curators, collectors, dealers, conservation students, and photographers, as well as those in the general public seeking information on preserving this ubiquitous form of cultural heritage"--Cover
A guide to the preventive conservation of photograph collections by Bertrand Lavédrine( Book )

22 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than 30 years of continuing research into the preservation of photographic collections have led to a better understanding of the fragility of these images and the means by which to preserve them. A resource for the photographic conservator, conservation scientist, curator, as well as professional collector, this volume synthesizes both the enormous amount of research that has been completed to date and the international standards that have been established on the subject. The book opens with a description of the principal forms of deterioration that photographs may undergo. It surveys the variety of containers used to house photographs and the environmental conditions each is meant to improve. It also discusses the maintenance of photographic collections and the precautions that must be taken in exhibiting them. Special attention is given to the digital technology and innovative techniques available to manage a photographic collection and ensure its longevity."--Publisher description
The Lumière autochrome : history, technology, and preservation by Bertrand Lavédrine( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Lumière is perhaps best known for his seminal role in the invention of cinema, but his most important contribution to the history of photography was the autochrome. Engagingly written and superbly illustrated with over 300 images, The Lumière Autochrome tells the fascinating story of the first industrially produced form of colour photography. Initial chapters present the Lumière family enterprise, set out the challenges posed by early colour photography, and recount the invention, rise, and eventual decline of the autochrome, which for the first four decades of the 20th-century was the most widely used form of commercial colour photography. The book then treats the technology of the autochrome, including the technical challenges of plate fabrication, described in step-by-step detail, and a thorough account of autochrome manufacture. A final chapter provides in-depth recommendations concerning the preservation of these vulnerable objects, including proper storage and display guidelines

En couleurs et en lumière : dans le sillage de l'impressionnisme, la photographie autochrome, 1903-1931 by Musée de Normandie( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La couleur apparaît tardivement dans la photographie. En effet, soixante-dix ans s'écoulent avant l'invention et la mise au point de l'autochrome par les frères Lumière. La production industrielle de ce nouveau procédé et sa commercialisation, à partir de 1907, apporteront une nouvelle manière de représenter le monde et de composer les images. La photographie place ainsi ses pas dans ceux des impressionnistes, pour qui la couleur est au centre de l'art. La Normandie, terre rêvée des artistes pour sa lumière et ses ciels changeants, fut une région largement explorée par les photographes professionnels et amateurs. Paysages, monuments, portraits et scènes de genre, photographiés pour la première fois en couleurs, illustrent de façon inédite les liens entre photographie, impressionnisme et néo-impressionnisme. Cet ouvrage propose au lecteur une surprenante invitation à découvrir une belle époque "en couleurs"."--Page 4 of cover
