A conservation assessment of the photographic collections of the Russian Museum of Ethnography was conducted during the period from November 18-23, 2003 by photo conservator Elena Simonova-Bulat, second cycle Andrew W. Mellon fellow and Senior Resident in Photograph Conservation at George Eastman House House, Rochester, New York.

Elena Simonova-Bulat met with the Curator of the Print Collection, Karian Soloviova, Curator of the Negative Collection, Elena Kononova, Main Curator Victoria Pervak, and the Museum Director, Vladimir Grusman.

The purpose of this assessment is to provide the Russian Museum of Ethnography with an understanding of the condition of the photograph collection and offer recommendations for improving its long-term preservation.

Specific goals for this assessment are:
  • Develop a long range plan for the collection
  • Increase staff awareness of photographic conservation concerns
  • Improve environmental conditions
  • Use as a tool to obtain funding for collections care

This report, prepared by Elena Simonova-Bulat, summarizes the results of the survey.

Elena Simonova-Bulat was an ARP fellow from 2001 to 2003. This project was conceived during Elena's time in the ARP program, but carried out from the George Eastman House immediately following the program when she was the Senior Resident in Photograph Conservation. Currently, Elena is a photograph conservator at the Harvard University Library in Cambridge, MA.
This assessment grew out of Elena's pre-ARP connections made when she was a conservator of paper and photographs at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
