Internship location: Center for Creative Photography (U of Arizona)

Project Abstract

For this project, I am studying and comparing physical versus digital conservation of photographs at the university of Arizona's Center for Creative Photography. I will spend the first half of my internship monitoring the environment in which photographs and photographic negatives are stored. For the second half, I will be assisting in archives management and completing an internal research project about a photographer within the CCP collection. I hope that this project will demonstrate the importance of preservation so that researchers, and the public may be able to continue to enjoy and learn from the great works in the CCP collection.
