✔ Inital photography done + new interest in Tiny Egypt

Since we last spoke, I’ve now done a day at each of my three partner museums: Manchester Museum, the Garstang Museum of Archaeology, and Bolton Libraries and Museums.

They were all fruitful sessions, photographing amulets, scarabs (including a beautiful amethyst scarab at the Garstang), a carnelian hyena’s-head bead, and clay seal impressions from Amarna. I’ve just emailed members of the Tiny Egypt Society with some of the photos I made over those days.

I’ll be sharing them more widely soon, but I want to get a bit more work done on them and share them with their respective curators before I do so.

However, I will say that I’ve made images that have really quite excited me (and learnt a few things, too). I’ll be getting some more sessions booked in soon, as I can’t ever stay away too long!

I’m also booking in a meeting with Warrington Museum and Art Gallery later this week to talk about Tiny Egypt, which is exciting, so watch this space!

Members of the Tiny Egypt Society are the backbone of this project; I really couldn’t keep it going without their amazing support.

If you’d like to be one of those project patrons who see my new photos before anyone else does, get behind-the-scenes news and help shape the project, you can do so by joining the Society from only £1.00 per month (first month half price). When you join up, you’ll get access to the members-only area of this website with past updates and an exclusive image gallery.
