Shooting Star Objects

Shooting Star Objects.

Just before Christmas, we started the first phase of our public outcomes for the project. To do this we needed a set of professionally taken images to use in our displays, publicity material and do create web displays.

Photographer John Reynolds www.clickclickclick.net spent a day at each of the partner museums, photographing 10 of their star objects that had been re-discovered during the review process. I accompanied John on the photography days, and this time spent with the objects allowed myself and the curators with the opportunity to study the objects more closely, and really get a feel for them and how they might best be displayed and presented to the public.

Here are some (not so professional!) photographs I took of John photographing the objects at each of the museums. The fantastic results will be revealed soon in the on-line displays in March.
