Dall'analogico al digitale e dal digitale alla mostra nel web, interessanti fotografie sul patrimonio archeologico e l'heritage, della Turchia dopo il 1922. Serge Noiret



The Nicholar Artamonoff Collection at Dumbarton Oaks

The Nicholas V. Artamonoff Collection includes 543 photographs taken in Istanbul and five archaeological sites in Western Turkey (Ephesus, Hierapolis, Laodicea on the Lycus, Pergamum, Priene) from 1935 to 1945. The high quality photographs are of great value as they show buildings, sites, and objects that no longer exist or are in a better state of preservation than today. As Ernst Kitzinger (a former director of Dumbarton Oaks) informed Artamonoff himself in a letter of December 13, 1962, the collection has "great documentary value [...] because of the subsequent vicissitudes that have befallen some of the monuments concerned."

The Image Collections and Fieldwork Archive (ICFA) of Dumbarton Oaks holds the original negatives of these photographs. They were acquired on July 11, 1962, through the support of Robert Van Nice, a Research Associate at Dumbarton Oaks who had worked in Istanbul conducting a large scale survey of the architecture of Hagia Sophia. Since coming to Dumbarton Oaks, Artamonoff's photographs have been used in publications and research by many distinguished scholars.

In 1980 all of the original Artamonoff negatives were copied to safety film negatives by ICFA for their preservation, and are housed in ICFA cold storage. All Artamonoff negatives were digitized in 2010 by ICFA interns Sharon Ke, Sara Wendell, Erica Abbey, and Luiza deCamargo and are now stored on a hard drive.

This online exhibit has been created by Günder Varinlioğlu, Byzantine Assistant Curator of ICFA, and Alyssa DesRochers, ICFA intern. The project is ongoing; research continues and the site is a work in progress. Comments or questions about the photographs, photographer or project are welcome.
