Photo Preservation

Sunday, June 6th 2:00 p.m. Are you anxiously eyeing those family photos deteriorating in an old shoebox? Come to Crowell Public Library and learn how to take action to preserve those treasures. Photographer DAVID OSWALD’s slide presentation will cover photography’s early pioneers and demonstrate how, as photography’s popularity increased, the need for photo albums and scrapbooks also increased dramatically. He will show how photo preservation and restoration has changed from traditional techniques to modern computer technologies, with samples of the photo restoration work Oswald has performed. A question and answer segment will follow the program. David Oswald has worked as a photographer for over 30 years, specializing in landscapes, portraits, photo restoration and digital imaging. He has photographed numerous national parks since 1984 and in January 2009, published his first book, “A Journey Through Mukuntuweap: The History of Zion National Park.” This book will be available for purchase after the presentation. Join us for another free and informative program at Crowell Library!
