Photography and Digitization
After completing graduate school at Mills College, I was hired on as a digitizing technician by the art museum to photograph, edit, and maintain a growing digital database of the over 10,000 piece collection. Documenting the work is part of a global push to make the world's art collections privately accessible to curators around the world. Having never been documented before, it was an amazing honor and thrill to open and digitize box after box of undocumented treasures from the collection. Highest among those were the Japanese ceramics collection, a ceramic plate by Picasso and an amazing set of drawings by Georgia O'keefe and Arnoldo Pomodoro. Additionally, before I left MCAM, I wrote and graphically illustrated a technical manual on 'best practices' museum staff and future digitizers.
