Photography – turning your relationship with something that interests you, is before you and the camera, into a form that you can take away and look at later, share with friends.
Archaeology – taking old things that interest you away from where they were found and turning them into an archive, a collection, that you can study, write about, and share.
Archaeography – giving visual, (photo)graphic form to such relationships with the remains of the past in a recognition that both archaeology and photography emerged at the same time and under the same interests in the modern world of the first half of the nineteenth century.
I have been exploring archaeography since I first worked as an archaeological site photographer with Barbara Harbottle at the beginning of my career in the late 70s and early 80s – photographing and drawing the medieval remains of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in England. See also – [Link]
