Photography as a document bears witness to a present and a past of our culture, and as an artistic piece it offers us a more aesthetic approach to reality.

Fortunately, interest in the legacy of photographers has grown significantly among an ever-widening audience, from collectors, conservators, historians, and even families seeking to preserve wonderful albums of personal memories.

Thus, although the deterioration in photographic images is a continuous and natural process, there are measures that can be put into practice in order to reduce the speed of it.
