URBINO SCHOOL OF CONSERVATION
Cultural Heritage Photography
ISIA Urbino, Italy
The imaging of Cultural Heritage represents the preliminary tool for assessing any conservation intervention. While the physical conditions of objects will change over time, imaging serves as a way to document and represent heritage in a moment in time of the life of the item.
In this case, I documented the "Saint Anthony" painting in order to help the School of Conservation of Urbino to conduct a survey on the artwork. I made use of different methods of imaging, with the aim of enhance research and study of this artwork: visible reflected light (standard), transmitted light, raking light, microscopy, ultraviolet fluorescent light.
Not every method is appropriate for every object, and not every object needs to be imaged by multiple methods.
