The training took place at the conservation studio at the Fundación Televisa in Mexico City, managed by Fernando Osorio. The staff was composed by two conservators, a person in charge of database and communication, and an image technician for the digitalization of the documents.
The laboratory was very well-equipped and gave me a very good overview of the materials and the treatment possibilities for the conservation of photography.
I have been introduced on the different methods of revealing photographs during the time, their material description and the way of treating and manipulating them. I have been collaborating to various projects undertaken by the studio while I was present:
Cleaning, documentation and storage of the collection of photographs of Charnay and Briquet; preparation and reception of artifacts going or coming from exhibitions; cleaning, framing and preparation of items for an exhibition the Fundación was in charge of at the National Museum of Arts in Mexico City. http://museopalaciodebellasartes.gob.mx/docs/paul_stranad/folleto.pdf
I have also been introduced to different conservation treatments on photographs as bath, separation of an image from a broken film, etc.
