Gary's lectures and workshops focus on the identification and preservation of photographic prints, negatives, cased objects and color images; emergency salvage of wet photographs; surface cleaning, mending, and flattening of paper and photographic materials; and conservation treatment possibilities. His teaching emphasizes the practical application of conservation principles to institutions or collections with limited budgets.
