Foto TasseThe photographic documentation is an integral part of archeology and therefore the work of the institute photographers plays a major role in all areas of the institute: They create high-quality print templates of ceramics and small finds with the help of digital SLR cameras, which are printed in posters, publications and catalogs Find use. Particularly for the international projects, whose finds can not usually be physically brought to Germany, technically competent photographs of the objects are essential.
Another facet of photographic work at the institute is the photo documentation of archaeological excavations on site. Thereby pictures of findings, also in detail, as well as large overviews are made. Here, too, not only the scientific applicability has to be considered, but also the future printability.
In consultation with the respective professors, students have the opportunity to receive professional fundraising photographs for their final theses. Likewise, students can seek advice on how best to photographically deal with large amounts of finds and what should be considered.
