Four Generations Restored

I love this image.  Part of the attraction is the very skilled manner in which it was photographed.  Part of it is that you just do not see four generation pictures that are 100 years old.  Life expectancy was not that great a century ago.

This was printed on a type of photographic process that copies very poorly.  It just shimmers and there is only one way to photograph this and get any detail out of it.

Restored from the pieces

One of the services I offer is copy and restoration of photographs. This is always fun and challenging, though this one was a greater challenge than most.

Judging by the materials, technique and the information from the customer, the original was early 1900s. It had been stored in a sack, and because of it’s brittle nature, was now a shamble of pieces. Every time you touched it, another piece would flake off.
