The mission I was given by the amazing Photojournalist Ron Haviv was quite a unique one.
Something quite apart from retouching.
We needed to find an authentic place for these newly discovered images to live visually.
Lying somewhere between the damage from time, the elements, chemicals, x-rays and light-leaks, and a visually acceptable and printable photo.
The satisfaction of scanning what was sometimes an almost blank strip of film, taking it into the software to discover that there were 2 young teenagers flicking V signs at Ron, or The President of the USA was there on the screen, was immense.
It was Photographic Archeology.
