Photo station

In organizing the workflow we have adapted a systematic approach, making the move easier by setting up different “stations” around the conservation lab. The objects are all stored in a temporary storage facility right next to the conservation lab. From the storage the objects are moved on a trolley to the first station in the lab, which is the photo station.  At the photo station we take a picture of each object from the front that will later be put into our moving database. The picture underneath illustrates how the photo station is set up and how it works.

 

 

The photos are purely for identification but our photo conservator couldn’t help but set it up in a professional manner. After the photo station the objects are taken to the cleaning station. More about this in another post!
