Audrey’s photographer

Audrey Amiss’s scrapbooks were degrading over time, so it was vital to photograph each item as thoroughly and quickly as possible to create a digital record. The unique properties of a large number of incredible works presented photographer Thomas Farnetti with unprecedented new challenges. In this film, he demonstrates the techniques he developed to photograph and capture for posterity every detail of Audrey’s highly intricate scrapbooks.
