Photographs & Prints

The photographs & prints conservators take care of the conservation and restoration work on photographic materials and prints in the museum collections. They also provide technical advice and conservation support for thematic exhibitions of relevant materials, oversee the environmental monitoring programmes for photographs & prints stores and galleries, and advise on the choice of storage/display materials.

They are also responsible for conducting condition inspections of loan exhibits and intended acquisitions, designing proper packing methods, and making recommendations on the conservation, handling and transportation of photographs and prints selected for travelling/loan exhibitions.
