Lecture and two-day Workshop on Conservation of Colour Slides

Neon Art Conservation presents a two-day workshop on the conservation, digitization and storage of colour slides, based on a project developed at the Nederlands Fotomuseum (Rotterdam, the Netherlands).

The Nederlands Fotomuseum holds a collection of over five million objects, among which is the archive of Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990). He is mostly associated to street photography, which he then used in his many photobooks. Among them, is 'Eye Love You' (1972) - the revolutionary first fully colour photo book to ever be published in the Netherlands.
