Example text

Great knowledge and efforts are required to archive and preserve them. We must be aware that all photographic material will inevitably deteriorate over the years because of a continuing chemical process within the photograph. The deterioration is a natural process and cannot be avoided, but it can at least be slowed down by proper storage and handling. 18 Nevertheless, some improvements can be achieved without great expenses. Photographic material requires careful handling. The crucial rule for preserving images is to treat originals carefully from the very beginning and to avoid damage, dirt, dust, scratches and fingerprints.
