Adopt a Negative for Restoration

Thank you for visiting our online exhibit!

Our mission is to preserve our millions of photographs for generations to come, which is often a difficult and daunting task. We hope you will consider helping by “adopting” a set of damaged negatives for restoration.

Your donation will allow us to repair your chosen negatives. The negatives are sent out to a specialized conservation lab where each one is meticulously restored.

Once you have adopted a collection of negatives, you will receive a digital copy of each restored image for your personal use. Please allow up to 6 months for delivery of your images.

With your help, we look forward to preserving Atlanta’s photographic history!
