Saving Your Family Photos
Cranbury Public Library

Monday, Jun. 17, 6:30pm-7:30pm
Learn how to identify, preserve, and interpret the old photographs in your personal collection. We will rethink the role photography has had in our lives and develop a plan so you can confidently manage your collection, even if it includes thousands of images. This is a quick-paced, introductory workshop that incorporates authentic examples of 19th and 20th century images.

Attendees will:
  • Learn the basics of the history of photography and photographic processes.
  •  Be challenged to think about photographic images in new ways and explore the many things that can be learned from a single image.
  • Learn how to best preserve, store, share, and display photographs to keep them safe, organized, and accessible for future generations.
Each workshop comes with a specialized resource guide that is made available to all attendees.
