Handling should be kept to an absolute minimum. If Archival Sleeves aren’t available, negatives and prints should be handled with cotton gloves. They must be protected from dust and should never be left in direct sunlight. Exposure to dirt, dust and fingerprints can degrade the integrity of the print and its overall value. Again, reinforcing the need for professional fine art packers, framers and handlers. Large prints should be stored flat in large folders or map cases – they should never be rolled.
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.Diane Arbus
