Restoring insect damaged photos

Silverfish damage is very common in old silver gelatin prints. These papers were made with light sensitive silver salts fixed to the paper with a gelatin emulsion, and it’s the gelatin that is so appealing to silverfish. We can digitally repair this damage by cloning surrounding areas, or photo-realistically painting missing spots on faces and clothing.

At the end of the process we make new archival quality prints on papers that emulate the look and feel of the original photo.
