Behind the scenes of David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire: The 20x24 Polaroids in the exhibition were mounted to 4-ply boards to prevent cockling (distortion) of the prints. Chris Holmquist dds 4-ply strips to the backing board of the mat to create a sink mat to accommodate the mounted print. After creating the sink mat, an 8-ply window mat is hinged to the back mat before framing.

#TurconiTuesday: The primary cause of nitrate decomposition is the gradual breakdown of the nitrate cellulose clear plastic film base. This process releases nitrous gases that mix with oxygen and the gelatin that holds the silver halides that form the actual image on the film frame, producing nitrous and nitric acid. These acids gradually bleach away the image and break down its gelatin support. -
