RESTORATION OF A TORN AND FADED PHOTOGRAPH
This beautiful group photo showing the elegance of 1930s fashion was rolled up and kept that way for many years. Dry and fragile the photograph felt apart when a careless employee at a discount chain store tried to unroll it.
Brought to the studio the photograph was repaired by putting together the separate pieces and reinforcing the joints with archival linen tape.
Those damages that could not be removed with traditional restoration techniques were carefully restored using professional digital retouching software.
The restored image was given a slight sepia tone such as would be expected on an old photograph and printed on a fine art paper.
