RESTORATION OF PHOTOGRAPH DAMAGED BY CHEMICALS

This beautiful portrait of legendary acting coach, Stella Adler perfectly illustrates what happens when a photograph is exposed to household cleaners. The chemical burn damaged the photo emulsion of the Cibachrome print creating an ugly stain and discoloration over the entire picture.

Fortunately the face on the portrait was not damaged and careful retouching removed the stain and recreated the damaged details of the photograph. Brightness and contrast were corrected to bring back the vibrant colors and the final image was printed on archival paper and framed under glass to protect the portrait from any future accidents.
