This project involved the digitisation of a collection of photographic film transparencies and negatives from the 1970’s and 1980’s, for reproduction in an important book about the work of the artists concerned.
The images were first captured in high resolution and then carefully cleaned and restored with adjustments to colour balance, tonality and contrast as well as the removal of dust spots, fine hairs and scratches, straightening and some minor cropping. My goal was to restore the images and then to adjust to ensure colours were accurately represented. In some instances I had access to the artworks to enable checking and in others, to the artists themselves.
The artists and the book editor were thrilled with the overall results – I am looking forward to seeing the book when it is published in 2015.
