Public Lecture on Contemporary Digital Photographic Print Processes and Technology

Learn more about current digital printing methods in a lecture on Monday, April 27, 2021. Daniel Burge of the Image Permanence Institute (IPI), Rochester Institute of Technology, will provide an overview of the history and technology of digital hardcopy printing, its preservation issues, including exhibition and storage, and its current uses in books, 3D printing, photography and graphic arts. Although this technical lecture is of interest to conservators, curators, librarians, archivists, artists, and collectors, it is also pertinent to the public who have a deeper interest in the topic or who use digital printing methods for their own art, photographs, photobooks, and albums. This lecture is offered by the conservation division of the National Gallery of Art with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The virtual lecture is free but requires advance registration. Please use this link to register in advance on the Image Permanence Institute website: A Zoom link for the lecture will be emailed to participants after registration.

Since 1990 Daniel Burge has worked at IPI, where his research has focused on the chemical and physical interactions between imaging media and enclosures, as well as on the preservation of all types of digital hardcopy. Burge has a bachelor of science in imaging and photographic technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He has taught extensively across the United States and internationally, has published in a wide variety of journals and proceedings, and is a recognized expert representing the United States on international standards committees.
