Conference on the conservation of photographs
Kutxas Auditorium, San Sebastian, Spain
October 10-11, 2002

The Fundacion Ordonez-Falcon de fotografia organises a conference on
the conservation of photographs. Professionals belonging to
international institutions are invited to discuss on the situation
of the profession at the beginning of the 21st century.

During the last decades of the 20th century the conservation of
photographic materials has developed into a discipline of its own,
becoming one more of the specializations in the field of heritage
preservation. This evolution started during the 1950's with the
recognition of the historical and artistic value of photography and
motion pictures, and with the new consciousness of the fragility of
the original materials. At the beginning of this 21st century, the
level reached by the discipline is considerable and the moment seems
ripe to make an assessment and an historical analysis--still to be
done--of its evolution.

This international conference intends to be a forum for the analysis
of the history and the future of the conservation of photographic
materials, under the perspective of the interdisciplinarity of the
field: history of photographs, conservation science and conservation
