Terri Cappucci has seen it all. Her Zoom meeting presentation Sunday, Feb 6, 2022 at 7:30 PM EST will discuss how she rescued thousands of glass negatives from the trash, and the steps she took to restore and preserve them, along with advice on how to keep images safe.
As a professional photojournalist and documentary photographer, she experienced the catastrophic loss of 20 years of photographic work on a personal project to capture the changes in South Africa beginning with Nelson Mandela’s election in 1994. All lost in a single day. https://terricappucci.com/blog/archives/01-2021
Not surprisingly, her interest in digitizing and preserving photographs became a prime interest. She will discuss her work as preservationist in general, the factors that led her to photographic preservation work, and her experience with the glass negatives that were rescued.
Cappucci, based in Western Massachusetts, earned a BA in Photojournalism and an MFA in Photography from UMass Amherst. Her work has been published in the Boston Globe, Boston Globe Magazine, and the New York Times. She received specialized training regarding historical photographic processes and preservation from the George Eastman Museum and the Northeast Document Conservation Center.

Her own work includes alternative photography practices such as glass plate, wet plate collodion, tintype, and hand-made photographs using the gumoil, bromoil, emulsion transfer and lift, and giclee film transfer.
Her presentation is sure to be engaging, informative, and a reminder that image preservation can never be taken for granted. Don’t miss it!
