This Victorian-era photograph had seen better days. The bottom of the photo was badly torn, with missing sections, and was buckling.
When framing photographs of this age, the number one priority is to conserve what is there, which is why we used an adhesive-free method of fixing the photo behind the 100% cotton mount, covering as much of the damage as possible in the process. The client also decided to use specialist UV filtering glass which will help protect the photo from further light damage.
This project was completed to Fine Art Trade Guild Framing Level 2, and featured techniques from the following GCF Advanced modules:
✅ Conservation Framing
✅ Mount Design and Function
