Languages of publication
The necessity o f providing a complete photographic documentation o f the goldsmith’s objects finding themselves beyond the museums has resulted from the proceedings aiming at publication of a catalogue o f Polish gold-work. The author deals with the mode of taking photographs according to uniform principles (what is meant there are i.a. the technical condictions of taking photographs for survey purposes, the kinds o f those photographs, etc.), the necessary equipment (the cameras, light meters, negative materials) and practical possibilities of photographing the works concerned on the spot (providing for adequate background and lighting of the said works and their details and, also, of big objects e.g. the altars). The paper is based on the author’s personal experience.
