    Presented by Kyla Ubbink

    A photograph tells a thousand tales, but only if it’s subject matter can be identified, and it has been given the chance at surviving the rigors of time and use. The first part of this presentation will take you through a brief history of photographic processes with a focus on dating images based on clothing, styles, and trends. The second part will provide tips and tricks for storing and caring for your photographs, ensuring their longevity.

    This program will be led by Kyla Ubbink, who has operated a private conservation studio since 2002. Mrs. Ubbink’s work has been integral to the collection of the Canadian War Museum, Canadian Museum of Natural History, and the Indigenous Art Center, as well as numerous university, archive, rare book, and art gallery collections.

    Mrs. Ubbink taught Cultural Preservation for Algonquin College’s Archives and Records Management Program from 2007 to 2019. She frequently provides lectures and workshops on preservation and conservation for professional conferences and has published several academic articles.
