Course on diagnostic imaging and photodocumentation

From: Ioanna Kakoulli <kakoulli>
Date: Monday, February 5, 2007
"Diagnostic Imaging and Photodocumentation of Archaeological and
    Cultural Materials"
8-22 June 2007

Partners: Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA, ICCROM and Los
Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

How do we photograph and record an object of cultural significance?

What methods can we use to be able to enhance important details? How
can we bring to light erased or faded marks? What can we do to see
beyond what is visible with the naked eye? In most academic
curricula in conservation, "documentation for conservation" has
become part of the core teaching and an integral part of diagnostic
imaging. This two-week summer course, a collaborative initiative
between the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA, the Los Angeles
County Museum of Art(LACMA) and ICCROM aims to provide students and
mid-career professionals in conservation and other related fields
the opportunity to develop skills in photo-documentation and
diagnostic imaging.

Application Deadline: 16 March 2007
