Photographs have complex chemical structure and material composition. Each material has its own preservation issues and needs.
Consequently, photographs may suffer from fading and deterioration over time regardless of the extra care and special handling. Most Insurance Companies cannot provide coverage for items that cause themselves to deteriorate as a cause of loss.
However, a proper appraisal done every 3-5 years will keep the collection in good proper order. As changes in condition occur, a current appraisal will note the photograph’s individual characteristics which will then influence the current market value of the single item.
