The concepts of photography and preservation go hand in hand. After all, photographs are, in essence, preserved moments in time. Photography’s unique capacity to communicate these moments from a very personal point of view makes it a nuanced form of expression. Combining intricate equipment know-how with a knack for leveraging variations in lighting, color, angles, perception, digital enhancement, and more, a photographer’s work is incredibly valuable—making preservation all the more integral.
Oil painting as a medium is steeped in rich history and universally appreciated. It has served as the most common technique for artistic painting on wood panel or canvas for centuries—beginning in Europe and spreading around the world. Although the process of creation is often a slower one, given the time needed for individual colors or layers to dry, oil painting offers the distinct advantages of flexibility, richness of color and overall density. Today, oil paintings remain as relevant and popular as ever.
