Today the DMA’s Digitization Team is working in the Museum’s Atrium. As the project has progressed over the past two years, the team has worked in various galleries and spaces, both in front and behind the scenes. Today’s objects to be photographed are all too large to be accommodated in the Museum’s traditional photo studio, and include the longest work on paper the DMA owns—A Gathering of Penniemama Sky Forces out in the Suburbs by Jim Roche, which is 462 inches long! In order to capture a work of this size, the Museum photographer, Chad Redmon, will be climbing into a boom lift and photographing the piece from an aerial point of view.
Katie Cooper is the Assistant Registrar for the Digitization of the Collection at the DMA.
