Pavel (Pasha) Shrago

Archaeology is highly visual and image oriented. Photographic documentation of our excavations and the objects recovered is a crucial part of our research and publication. It is also a daily part of our teaching. Most expeditions have a staff photographer and for most of our projects Pavel ("Pasha") is our man in the field. Field photography is central to the documentation of context while back in the studio, the artifacts we discover are photographed on film. Both field and artifact photos are then scanned and the digital images linked into databases so that any square, room, wall or object can be connected to its larger context both graphically and textually. Michal is in charge of the scanning and digital manipulation.
