Jamison Art Conservation is officially up and running! The first step in any conservation treatment is the full examination and documentation of the object “before” treatment. Now that our camera equipment is assembled, we spent yesterday photographing all the projects already queued up in the studio. Every piece has its recto (front) and verso (back) shot in standard light, and we also take raking light images (shots illuminated from one side only) to show texture and detail. Once each treatment is complete, the same set of “after” images will also be taken.
