Throwback Thursday: Here is a restoration I made last year that I wanted to revisit. I get a lot of phone calls about all that is possible with photographic restoration, most calls speak about the photograph as a precious family treasure. Often the image to be worked on is the only image of that family member. I start slowly with each photograph, I sit with it for a few minutes just looking at the damage and think about where to begin. This photograph is like a lot of images that I restore. It has damage to the face, as well as texture to the paper to work around. I created a new negative, then printed a silver gelatin fiber print. I then sepia toned, painted with oil, and varnished the final photograph.
