Few people think that it is essential to keep their pictures safe and secure. By using digital technology, many people can forget about old photographs they took 15, 20, or even more years ago. These prints are most likely stored somewhere in a box that gathers dust and becomes discolored with time. Some may be in old albums, but they are not even damage-protected, which means they are vulnerable to theft. It is essential to preserve old photographs properly. Future generations will be interested in the events of the previous decades, and these neglected images will, unfortunately, be deemed unworthy of preservation.
High temperatures, high humidity, high light levels, and general manipulation of prints or films are the most severe threats to your photographs. Whenever you contact the front of a picture, the oils and chemicals in your skin will irreversibly damage it, as we have said for years. This is not a possibility. Unfortunately, we humans have dirty fingers that are very severe. Because pictures are created using light-sensitive materials, bright light may also cause damage to them. Additionally, bright light can cause damage to negative light, which is extremely sensitive to light.
There are various reasons why antique photographs get damaged and reduced over time, many of which can be traced back to three common adversaries. Many people do not understand the dangers of saving their photographs until after they have done so. They may be used in environments with a lot of dampness or intense light. The photos may be handled too often, resulting in the shots being ruined. When combined with the certainty of time, the performance of any of these actions leads to the deterioration that has been seen in many older photographs.
Photographers are responsible for many photoshoots. When you work as a photographer, you would undoubtedly be aware of the many different types and genres of photography available. The street and casual photography in the workshop will cover a wide range of topics. Much of the time, it may be random members of society who are responsible.
You may have seen some pictures of this kind taken by professional photographers. However, after you have taken the picture, you may never see those people again. This article is about a fantastic photographer who captured images that he took 40 years ago while exploring his interests in photography. Chris Porsz is the photographer who has followed his subjects to create the ” Reunions” photobook. The photobook is now out of print in its current version.
This odd photobook has gained popularity since it has been around for an extended time (40 years). Porsz took great effort to locate the same people he shot about 40 years ago to recreate the picture. In addition to the photographer, seeing an event that they experienced decades ago may be very satisfying for the image’s subjects in question as well.
Photographer Chris Porsz collaborated with writer Jo Riley to produce the photobook ‘Reunions’. The comparison pictures and anecdotes were gathered in one place. It contains memories and stories that are relevant to today’s catch-up culture. This book has a great deal of interest.
We have collected some of the pictures from it and posted them here. You may go to the bottom of the page and submit your finest photographs to the top. Also, do not forget to mention this collection in the comments section below!
