Pictures tell the stories of our lives. If you have old photos that you’d like to share with future generations, this session is for you.

Topics covered will include:

-Making choices about which photos to work with
-Converting prints and slides to digital images
-Damaged (stained, creased, etc.) photo repair
-Best storage practices for both your originals and digital copies
-Ensuring the story stays with the picture

This class will put you on the right path to take on this project. Questions will be taken at the end of the presentation. This class meets in the Photography & Digital Arts Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.


Ed Grossman’s passion for photography started in his youth. He still remembers being captivated watching Polaroids develop before his eyes. The way that film, chemicals, and time worked together to create a picture is something he’s never forgotten. Today, those memories of instant film inspire him to combine artistic elements into storytelling portfolios. His projects include: Sunday Drive, a nostalgic look at how his world view broadened while in the backseat of the family station wagon; Beaches Offseason, where scenes typically associated with vacation fun instead represent life’s mundane or trying experiences. And Fading American Bookstore, documenting the impact of modern times on a cultural institution. In addition to local venues, he's participated in nationally publicized exhibitions at the Griffin Museum of Photography, PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont, and the New Orleans Photo Alliance. Online, he’s been a featured artist on Lenscratch and has appeared in The Online Photographer. Ed’s work is in private print collections throughout the country as well as the public archive of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas - Austin. A lifelong New Englander, Ed has a B.A. from Brandeis University. He currently lives and works in Mattapoisett, MA.
